What do you get when you combine Sarah Jessica Parker and Adrienne Arsht with NYC Ballet? You get a gala full of generous donors ready to have a celebration. Add Cartier as a sponsor and the bling in the room sparkles, include Champagne by Ruinart and the dancing continues till well after midnight.
We may have had an eclipse of the moon this week that lead to new aligning of the stars. It was only a hint of great things to come.
All I can say was that Wednesday night was FANTASTIC.
As always it was the most fabulous night in NY. There were gorgeous people both on the stage and off. The guests laughed and mingled after the opera in a tent designed by the talented David Stark. To see all the photos please click oaths link PHOTOS

It has been many years since the Breakers has opened its door for the grand occasion of a white tie Dinner with beautifully elegant men and women dinning in the main hall and dancing away the evening after dinner to the sounds of a live band. Such was Saturday night when the halls and rooms were filled with doctors, research fellows, old family socialites and other supporters of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research.
In her speech at the end of the evening Leah Cann reminisced on her thoughts of what it would have been like 100 years ago to attend such an event and pointed out that at that time although many things would have been the same there were no cures for cancer or successful treatments available. She expressed her hopes that in another 100 years when people are enjoying the beautiful and majestic space of the Breakers that they will note that Cancer will have become a disease of the past.
Thanks to the hard work of all involved Hope Funds supports it fellows in research into some of the rarest cancers so often overlooked by organizations funding in research.

I just got back from Newport where I photographed the weekend events for the Hope Funds for Cancer Research festivities as they held their annual summer Gala.
The night before the big event was a dinner at Marble House that was attended by the Fellows and those close to the organization while Saturday was a wonderful White Tie event held at the Breakers. This is the first time in many many years since such a party has been held in this magnificent grand househas been held in this magnificent grand house.

Even the rain could not stop the celebrations. This year's Moma Party in the garden also marks David Rockefellers 100 th Birthday which is tomorrow June 12th 2015.
Friends, family and happy NY's walked through the rain to get to the tents covering the garden. No one seemed to care and everyone wanted to say Hello to Mr Rockefeller.

Born in Australia, both my Grandmothers were actresses so it was only normal that I wanted to be one too. But life took me on a different road and I ended up modeling all over the world until I finally put my bags down in NY. Picking up a camera came easily and I became fascinated with trying to share my love of being infront of the camera especially with people who were afraid of being photographed. I discovered that smile and the world smiles back. When not taking photos I am making henna designs.
