The Henry Street Settlement’s annual gala raised money for the Lower East Side
Where: The Plaza Hotel.
When: Tuesday, April 8th
Why: The annual fete raises funds for Henry Street’s countless programs benefitting the Lower East Side community. This year, the event raised over $1 million—and the live auction racked in figures in the tens of thousands. When a meet and greet with Stoudemire came up on the pile, the enthused basketball player jumped up to throw in 2 courtside seats.
