The menu of the 29th annual DreamBall, which raised more than $2 million, was inspired by the taste buds of its honorees. From the baked tagliolini and ham appetizer, a favorite of Dior’s Pamela Baxter, to the main course of branzino al forno, meant to pay homage to Firmenich’s Jerry Vittoria’s Italian roots, the event, held at Cipriani 42nd Street Sept. 26, was all about giving the fight against cancer a personal touch.
“I wanted to stop by and show my support. This is my duty,” said Goldie Hawn, who spoke to WWD about her personal connection to the crusade to find a cure. “My mom had breast cancer and this is an organization doing incredible work.” Hawn also discussed her “Mind Up” program, which is now in six countries and helps children to understand their emotions, with a focus on creating optimism and mental stability.
