A Winter Palace in New York

Last Wednesday night, East Side House Settlement hosted a kick-off party at the studio of artist Hunt Slonem to honor the Benefit Committee of the East Side House Settlement Gala Preview of the 2010 New York International Auto Show.

120 guests were welcomed by this year’s benefit committee co-chairs, Kipton Cronkite, Paige Ethington Hardy, and Fe Fendi.

The event was sponsored by New York magazine and officially revved up this glamorous crowd for the Gala Preview event on April 1, 2010. All proceeds from the event will benefit East Side House Settlement, a leading social services agency that serves young people and families in the South Bronx.

Guests included: Kipton Cronkite, Paige and Tripp Hardy, Fe and Alessandro Fendi, Hunt Slonem, John Sanchez, Jennifer Stebbins, Phil and Maria Yang, Tatiana and Campion Platt, Geoffrey Bradfield, Eliza Osborne, Marianna Olszewski, Nina and John Richter, Melanie Seymour Holland, Leslie Stevens, Jeffrey Slonim, Barbara Tober, Blair Voltz Clarke, Alison Minton, Jed Weinstein, Edward and Bettina Mirsepahi, Margo Langenberg, Jean Shafiroff, Jim Corl, Jane and Lloyd Sprung, and many more.
