Last week the Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Associates Committee and VALENTINO celebrated their annual Fall Party.
The evening brought together over 300 guests to the Metropolitan Club for a grand evening of cocktails, dinner, and live dancing with music from DJ D-Nice.
The evening was co-chaired by Mollie Ruprecht Acquavella, Amory McAndrew and Anna Burke Patterson, with design décor by Ron Wendt Design.
Fundraising efforts were led by Christie’s auctioneer Lydia Fenet to benefit the Associates Committee’s newest initiative to fund research for Clinical Genomic Profiling for Pediatric Cancer Patients, which can help identify gene mutations that lead to the development of cancer. The event raised money to help MSK researchers and clinicians create a new paradigm of diagnosis and treatment based on specific molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis.
It was a truly glamorous affair with notable attendees including Tabitha Simmons, Charlotte Ronson, Mollie Ruprecht Acquavella & Alexander Acquavella, Jamie & Veronica Beard, Wes Gordon, Olivia Chantecaille, Jennifer Fisher, Valerie Boster Macauley, Chelsea Leyland, Jordan Foster, Molly Howard, Kate Foley, Jessica Sailer & Mark van Lith, Rickie de Sole, Jane Keltner de Valle, and many more!
