OH, HUGH: Happily for the female contingent, next week’s New Yorkers for Children gala falls on a Monday night. Guests including Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Nina Griscom, Cornelia Guest and Aerin Lauder will have a chance to chat with co-chair Amy Astley of Teen Vogue, dance in the arms of charming co-chair Oscar de la Renta and meet face to face with co-chair and Broadway hunk Hugh Jackman on his night off.
To accommodate table-hopping, flirting with Jackman and more time on the dance floor, the proceedings will begin at 6:30 p.m.
