More than 350 guests from the worlds of fashion, art, and philosophy came together for the annual Fall Party hosted by Valentino and The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Associates Committee.

The oh-so-glamorous black tie event started with cocktails followed by dinner, dancing, and a live pledge at the iconic Four Seasons Restaurant that’s due to close its doors next year.

Ron Wendt Design created the décor of the elegant space and music was spun on full blast by DJ D-Nice. This year’s event was chaired by Beth Blake Day, Melissa Meister, and Ferebee Taube, and altogether, successfully raised $600,000 for The Society of MSK and The Associate’s Committee’s new fundraising initiative, the Pediatric Pain and Palliative Care Team.

Notable attendees included Nicky Hilton Rothschild and James Rothschild, Shoshanna Gruss, Jill Kargman, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler, Veronica Beard, Patricia Lansing, Brett Heyman, and more.
