On March 16, 2010, our friends and supporters gathered at the Akris boutique for an evening of cocktails in celebration of the New Yorkers For Children Seventh Annual Spring Dinner Dance – A Fool’s Fete. Guests also enjoyed a special presentation of the Akris Spring/Summer 2010 Collection.  The event was hosted by Allison Aston, Marisa Brown, Alina Cho, Lydia Fenet, Rory Hermelee, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Clare McKeon, Susan Shin, and Shirin von Wulffen. In honor of the event, Akris has extended a 20% incentive off purchases from March 16th – April 8th, from which a percentage of proceeds will be donated to NYFC. NYFC supporters, including Board Members Donya Archer Bommer, Ashley McDermott, Lauren Shortt Pinto, and Nicholas Scoppetta and Friends Committee Members Marisa Arredondo, Alexandra Becker, Norma Olarte Becker, Martin Gibson Dessoffy, Ayla Farnos, Nicole Esposito, Alison Harmelin, Stephanie LaCava, Tinsley Mortimer, and Rachel Roy were all in attendance on this beautiful spring evening to mix and mingle and toast to the upcoming Spring Dinner Dance on April 8th.
