On Tuesday night, The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering raised over $1 million for programs at MSK and The Society’s Research Grants Program, and train, as Dr. Jose Baselga put it, the young doctors “who will be our future leaders and shape the future of the organization,” at its 10th Annual Spring Ball at The Plaza Hotel. The Carolina Herrera fashion house co-hosted the event, which was chaired by Patricia Herrera Lansing, Alexi Ashe Meyers, Shoshanna Gruss, and Kathy Thomas. In a spring-inspired ballroom created by Ron Wendt Design, the glamorous evening featured cocktails, dinner and dancing to DJ D-Nice after a special performance by Gloria Gaynor that got almost all the 400-plus guests on the dance floor. “I Will Survive” got most of the guests singing along, too, and seemed a fitting anthem for both the event the historical moment.


The evening, coming just a few days after the Society celebrated the arrival of the acclaimed TEFAF art show to the Park Avenue Armory at another benefit, also represented a sort of victory lap for the Society’s president, Lavinia Branca Snyder, whose two-year term in that post is soon to end.


Notable attendees included: Seth Myers, who pledged $10,000 in a spirited donation auction during the dinner, Aerin Lauder, Jeanne Williams, Meredith Melling, Dani Stahl, Rebekah McCabe, Lauren DuPont, Indré Rockefeller, Eleanor Ylvisaker, Annelise Peterson and David Winter, Wes Gordan, Amory McAndrew, Ferebee Taube, Dr. Craig Thompson, Ophelia Branca Snyder, Tina and Simon Beriro, Sandy Warner, Jamee and Peter Gregory, Danielle Ganek, Christine Schwarzman, Gillian Hearst Simonds, Gaetano Sciuto and Stefania Giordano, Shelley and Michael Carr, Kate Pickett and Andrew Davis, Marcie and Jordan Pantzer, Kate Allen, Ashley McDermott, Shoshanna Gruss, Patricia Herrera Lansing, Alexi Ashe Meyers, Kathy Thomas, Julie and Philip Geier and many more.
