MCNY's Director's Council Winter Ball brought the whole town

Tuesday night at the Museum of the City of New York on Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street, they held their annual Director’s Winter Ball with more than 500 attending, raising more than $445,000 to benefit the museum.

This is an established social ticket in New York with a large following of prominent and socially active New Yorkers, many of whom have been involved with the museum almost right out of college. Now it is also a fashion parade and one of the glamorous parties of the winter season. After dinner they danced into the night with the music of DJ David Chang.

The evening’s chairmen were: Mark Gilbertson, Phoebe Gubelmann, Cynthia Lufkin, Heather Mnuchin, Calvert Moore, Allison Rockefeller, Shafi Roepers, Andrew Roosevelt, Burwell Schorr. Sponsors for the evening were Asprey,1st Dibs, J. Mendel and The Plaza.
