Young Fellows Announce Next Themed Ball at The Frick Collection
The Young Fellows of The Frick Collection have partnered with Carolina Herrera to host a benefit entitled “Men’s Club” on Thursday, February 12, 2004, from 8:30 pm to midnight, at the height of fashion week in New York. This annual themed fund-raising event has been held every winter beginning in 2000 and is consistently named by The New York Times as one of the top the parties of the year. Tickets to the past four events — The Edwardian Ball, The Tartan Ball, Fête des Quatre Saisons, and last year’s An Evening of Nouveau Glamour sold out quickly to supporters of the Collection and their guests. Some 700 people are expected to attend this year’s event, which takes its cue from the chic, blending elements of the legendary gentlemen’s clubs and glamorous nightclubs of New York City. The Chairmen of “Men’s Club” are Marina Rust Connor, Lauren du Pont, Nathalie Kaplan, Catherine Sitrick Shepard, and Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, with Honorary Chairman Carolina Herrera, Designer of Carolina Herrera New York. The Vice-Chairs are Julian Iragorri, Martha Loring, and Jennifer Nilles.
Proceeds for the event will provide essential support for the Educational Program of The Frick Collection, which serves New York City public schools.
