New York’s pretty and philanthropic all turned out for Fountain House’s Fall Fete benefit, which started at the Fendi store on Fifth Avenue and then moved to The venerable Racquet and Tennis Club on Park Avenue for dinner and dancing. A 62-year-old organization, Fountain House provides employment, wellness, housing and education for people with mental illness.


The Racquet and Tennis Club is strictly jacket and tie, so the gents looked dapper, but of course the girls, many dripping in Judith Ripka jewels, stole the scene. Amongst the crowd: Mark Gilbertson (who works tirelessly to raise money for Fountain House), Byrdie Bell, Stewart Manger, Katie Zorn, Michael Dorrian (who mentioned Dorrian’s big 5-0 anniversary coming up) Sarah Howard, Andy and Kate Bellin, Lil Phillips, Minnie Mortimer, Tantivy Bostwick, Phoebe Gubelmann and Georgina Schaeffer, to name just a few fabulous names.
