Ballet Hispanico Spring Gala 2016 at the Plaza Hotel

Always one of my most favorite jobs because it includes dancers of all ages, not just the guests but the students and company of Ballet Hispanico who come together to celebrate Latino Culture with their love of all types of dance but especially dance with it routes in the rhythms and sounds of South America.
There are performances by the Company and the students followed by the guests who all seem to know how to samba and cha cha cha.
Here are just a few photos. To see everything please click on this PHOTO LINK

Hope Funds for Cancer Research celebrate their 10th Year Anniversary in NY

On April 26th and April 27th Hope Funds For Cancer Research celebrated its 10 year Anniversary with panel discussions, a Ladies Lunch and a Black Tie Dinner in NY bringing together many of the greatest names in Cancer Research. It was amazing to be in the rooms filled with Professors, inventors, mentors and fresh young minds all eager to learn and share as they came together with the focus on rare forms of cancer and the future of funding and research. Hope Funds supports its Fellows beyond the financial level introducing and cross pollinating the up and rising stars of Cancer Research with those who have lead the way.
I love to watch as the room becomes alive with chatter and conversation as people meet their heroes, Dr's who's papers have been taught and studied, others who have made discoveries that have changed the course of science, everyone full of eagerness knowing they are in a room where they all talk the same language, and while I confess it is a language I do not understand I feel their passion and know that these are the people who are working every day to find the cures for cancer and to make this world a better place.

Carnegie Hall 125th Anniversary Gala

Last night was the Carnegie Hall 125th Anniversary  Gala  with an evening at Carnegie Hall hosted by Richard Gere followed by a black tie dinner at The Waldorf Astoria.
I did things a little differently Last night. Still playing with my new 500mm sense I photographed the guests by the stairs as they arrived for cocktails. It is always so fun seeing everyone and and as always Mr and Mrs Weill looked wonderful and graciously stopped for a photo before entering into cocktails.
