Monday evening an elegant crowd made their way toward an ancient Egyptian temple. The occasion was the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s annual Spring Ball, and the setting was the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur.
The Harry Winston-sponsored soiree celebrated its sixth anniversary – noticed the initials on the candlelit main staircase. The votives spelled out “H” and “W.”
After finishing their cocktails in the lobby, guests were ushered into the temple to worship at the altar of petite filet mignon and Lafite Rothschild Bordeaux Blanc as Diana Krall performed.
In all, the evening raised $1.5 million for the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s kidney cancer initiative.
Enjoy the pics!
