The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center hosted its annual Spring Ball on Tuesday night in New York — and after all was said and done, the organization raised over $1.7 million for its initiatives.
This year, The Society of MSKCC partnered with Saks Fifth Avenue to host the event at the Plaza Hotel — drawing Saks president Marc Metrick and the department store’s fashion director Roopal Patel (who served as the honorary Saks chair), in addition to MSK’s usual suspects: president Jamee Gregory, Hope Geier Smith, Lili Buffett and Virginia Tomenson.
Following a cocktail hour and three-course dinner, guests including Wes Gordon hit the dance floor; a younger contingent of the volunteer-led organization known as the junior party also made their way to the ballroom to hear the DJ stylings of Natasha Diggs. The 2018 spring ball marked the first year that young philanthropists were invited to participate.
