Young Fellows Announce Next Themed Ball at The Frick Collection, "A Dance in the Golden Age"
The Young Fellows of The Frick Collection have partnered with several generous sponsors to host a benefit entitled “A Dance in the Golden Age” on Thursday, February 24, 2005, from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. This sixth 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 parties of the year. Tickets to the past five events — The Edwardian Ball, The Tartan Ball, Fête des Quatre Saisons, An Evening of Nouveau Glamour, and last year’s Men’s Club sold out quickly to supporters of the Collection and their guests. Hundreds of people are expected to attend this year’s event, which takes its inspiration from the extraordinary seventeenth-century paintings in The Frick Collection. Joining the leadership of this event is a new group of chairmen: Lauren Bush, Lauren Davis, Tinsley Mortimer, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler, and Elisabeth Saint-Amand, who are welcomed by Honorary Chairmen Marina Rust Connor, Lauren du Pont, Nathalie Gerschel Kaplan, Martha Loring, and Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer. The Vice-Chairs are Lisa Gorrivan, Robert Lindgren, and Catherine Sitrick Shepard. Proceeds for the event will provide essential support for the Education Program of The Frick Collection, which serves New York City public schools in all five boroughs. J. Mendel, David Yurman, and First Republic Bank are the major sponsors of the Young Fellows’ “A Dance in the Golden Age.” Thornwillow Press, Moët & Chandon Champagne, Robert Couturier & Associates, Glorious Food, and www.Flowerbulbs.com have also kindly supported the event through gifts and services.
