HAPPY MEALS: Citymeals-on-Wheels hosted its 27th annual power lunch for women at The Plaza Friday afternoon. The star attraction was Cyndi Lauper, who performed her hit “Time After Time” for a room that included Cynthia Nixon, Brooke Shields, Katie Couric, Debra Messing, Norah O’Donnell, Padma Lakshmi, Bobbi Brown and Donna Hanover.
The organization was cofounded by the food critic Gael Greene to feed New York’s homebound elderly. Silda Wall Spitzer has been involved for a number of years. “This is a fantastic event to be able to raise awareness as well as money for an amazing cause, and I’m looking forward to volunteering on Thanksgiving and think they serve a really important need in this city,” she said, though she declined to say the neighborhood where she’d be volunteering for Citymeals.

Kathleen Turner, a 20-year veteran of the organization’s board, has been to many of these lunches over the years.
“You get 500 New York women in one room, the energy is amazing. It is a lot of sass,” she said.
