On Thursday evening, 170 guests turned out to show their support for the charity, which provides housing for children undergoing cancer treatment and their families in New York.
The “Fete de Saison” started with cocktails at the jeweler’s Fifth Avenue mansion, after which the bejeweled crowd walked to Madison Avenue for a dinner and auction at Le Cirque 2000.
“The mansion isn’t big enough for everyone,” said Stanislas de Quercize, president and chief executive officer of Cartier Inc.
The event raised $180,000 for the Ronald McDonald House. Among the guests were Debbie Bancroft, Muffy Potter Aston, Marjorie Gubelman, Fernanda Kellogg, Patricia Duff, Sommers White Farkas and Jonathan Farkas, Nicole Miller and Courtney Arnot.
