Martha Stewart, Linda Fargo, Tham Kannalikham, Alex Papachristidis, Campion Platt, Tony Ingrao and more gathered at Cipriani 42nd Street on Monday for the annual Kip Bay Boys & Girls Club President’s Dinner. Chaired by Architectural Digest Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley and designer Bunny Williams, this year’s dinner honored John Saladino and the financial services firm Morgan Stanley.


But the event wasn’t just about the grownups in the room. Members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club performed musical routines to “Rise Up” and selections from the musical “A Bronx Tale.”


Attendees included James Druckman, Ken Fulk, Jamie Drake, Susan Zises Green, Alexa Hampton, Mara Miller, Jesse Carrier, Christopher Spitzmiller, Pierre de Villemejane, Daniel Quintero, Martha Stewart, Alex Papachristidis, Campion Platt, Linda Fargo, Tham Kannalikham, Tony Ingrao, Randy Kemper and Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr.


The President’s Dinner raises money to provide more than 10,000 young people throughout the Bronx with after-school and enrichment programs. This year’s event raised more than $1 million.
