HALE AND HARDY: A bevy of Douglas Hannant-clad socials, including Valesca Guerrand-Hermès, Alexandra Lebenthal and actress Patricia Clarkson, turned out to support Hale House at its annual benefit on Monday at the Prince George Ballroom in New York. Frederick Anderson, president of Douglas Hannant, cochaired the event, which honored New York Giant Justin Tuck and his wife, Lauran, along with David Ushery of WNBC. “I was completely blown away by the commitment of the workers and the one-on-one attention to kids who attend the Learning Center,” said Anderson of his visits to Harlem-based Hale House.
Despite the looming work week, hardy attendees stayed for the after-dinner dancing, including Jennifer Creel, Alexandra Lind Rose, Adelina Wong Ettelson, Diandra Douglas, Hunt Slonem and designer Miguelina Gambaccini.
