Longhouse held its Winter Benefit on February 25th at Hearst Tower in New York City. The event gathered an exclusive group of supporters who were treated to a night of entertainment, conversation and dinner.


The night started at 6pm with a reception and private viewing of “Patrick McMullan’s Faces of Fashion” a Hearst exhibition. Patrick was, of course, there to describe the stories and inspiration behind his photographs and talked about his “skin, sexiness and shock” style.


The reception was followed at 7pm with a performance by famed composer and musician, Nico Muhly. Muhly’s compositions have premiered with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philarmonic and the Met.


Upper-level guests ended the night with a dinner at event Chair Alexandra Munroe and Robert Rosenkranz’s home at River House.
