Fergie Makes Pitch for Tents
by Geoge Rush and Joanna Molloy with Marcus Baram and Marc S. Malkin
June 17, 1999
 




Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, dug in her heels at New York's storied writers' hangout, Elaine's, meeting and greeting donors to her charity, Chances for Children, who wrote checks for the emergency airlift of 10,000 tents for Kosovo.

Why so many tents when the refugees are going home soon?

"Because the Serbian forces have done a very good job of sabotaging their homes and burning them, and there's nothing left," she told us. "So, if they go home, they've got no shelter."

Having worked tirelessly for the cause, Fergie was due to airlift herself home last night in time to see her daughters in a school event. She and the girls live in the same house as her ex, Prince Andrew. "It works quite well," she said.

As to rumors of a rekindled romance, she said with a smile, "I don't know anything about that."

You might ask, if she doesn't, who does? But then maybe she's saving the details for her next book about how she re-invented herself after her divorce.

"It's about how difficult it is to become aware in a very restricted society," said the Duchess, who has managed to thrive outside the arctic climate of a Windsor family dinner.

Looking svelte in a navy blue suit, Fergie stood with host Bobby Zarem and met Pat Kennedy Lawford, songwriter Denise Rich, designer Carolina Herrera, "Lion King" star Jason Raize, hunky actor Andre Boccaletti, Phyllis George, movie producer Webb Stone, Capitol publishing CEO Randy Jones, lawyer Elizabeth Gaine, Kimberly Rockefeller, Anne Hearst, Nina Griscom, Judy and Sam Peabody, Pat Kerr Tigrett, Ann Slater, Ann Barish and Daily News publisher Mortimer B. Zuckerman.

Oh, there was also the ad agency exec whom Fergie greeted as "Mr. Christianson."

"Richard Kirshenbaum," said the man, correcting her. "I'm a Jewish prince."

To donate to the Chances for Children Kosovo Relief Fund, mail checks to One World Trade Center, 101st floor, New York, NY 10048.
