WANG HONOR: Vera Wang will show off her skating technique and latest outfit for the ice on April 2, when she gets honored by Figure Skating in Harlem at its annual Skating with the Stars benefit. The event, to be held at the Wollman Rink in Central Park, will also honor Ellen Lowey, patron of FSH, and artist and entrepreneur Rhonda Ross. Guests get to skate with several Olympic skaters, including Sasha Cohen, Sarah Hughes and Evan Lysacek, as well as Wang, a former competitive figure skater.
Proceeds will support FSH, a not-for-profit organization that provides girls with educational and skating opportunities to build self-worth. Donald Trump and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star and FSH Board chair emerita Tamara Tunie will serve as honorary chairs; Kimberly and Stephen Bollenbach and Terry and Tina Lundgren are the event chairs. Tickets to the gala start at $300.
