Wednesday night, shoe goddess Vanessa Noel, a longtime homeowner at Jamaica's exclusive Round Hill Resort (also home to Ralph and Ricky Lauren, Stephen and Christine Schwarzman and many more notables) , brought the boldfaced pack to her East 64th Street salon for a pre-party pour in anticipation of  The Hanover Charities' 60th Anniversary Sugar Cane Ball Diamond Jubilee next month at Round Hill.

The ball, an annual fundraising event for Hanover Charities, is the most extravagant event of the year at Round Hill. The largest such organization in western Jamaica, Hanover Charities, helps Round Hill's neighbors in Hanover Parish gain reading and computer skills, provides health clinics and a soup kitchen for the hungry, and supplies basics to the disabled and elderly of the district. Noel, a board member, is chairing the 60th Diamond Jubilee ball on Feb 18th. " It will be my fifth time chairing this really really fun event," she explained. "I am most passionate and involved in this charity! Lady Monson, who was one of the people who helped create Hanover Charities, owned the house at Round Hill that I now own. It was originally built by Roger Hammerstein. Good vibes!!!"

Attending the kickoff event were Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Daisy Soros, Marjorie Reed Gordon, Denise Deluca, Kirtsen Guenther, Corrie Anne Phillips, Stuwart Sundlin, Gail and Dennis Karr, Liliana Cavendish, J.D. Podolsky, Liane Pei, Christina Kepple, Virginia Healey, Roy Kean, Barbara Hodes, Prince Dmitri of Yugoslavia, Mark Gilbertson, Noel Mignot, and Jay and Tracy Snyder.
