Alexandra Reeve, daughter of the late Christopher, joined Holly Dunlap and a bevy of guests Tuesday night at Dunlap’s Hollywould store in downtown New York. The cause: to support the Christopher and Dana Reeve foundation, which promotes the well-being of people living with spinal cord injuries and paralysis. “I’m studying for the bar exam, so I’m lucky I was even allowed out for a little while,” said Reeve, clad in a coral and white Hollywould dress. “This is a great event because so many of these kind of accidents happen to people in their 20s, so it’s important that we have this kind of demographic.” The room was indeed filled with youngsters sipping Campari cocktails. Also on hand was the foundation’s ambassador Francesco Clark, a former Harper’s Bazaar editor and founder of Clark’s Botanicals, who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2002. “I’m actually writing a book about the experience and it’s really therapeutic,” said Clark. “I used to write these three-page e-mails to my friends and finally one of them said, ‘You should just write a book.'”
