What: The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s 8th annual Spring Ball, sponsored this year by Michael Kors.
When: Tuesday, May 12th
Where: The Pierre Hotel
Why: On a jam-packed spring social calendar, this gala has always been a must-do for a reason: proceeds go towards cancer research and a new initiative is introduced each year. On Tuesday, Sotheby’s auctioneer Jamie Niven raised funds earmarked for the Society Research Grants Program, which finances early stage research among MSK’s post-doctoral and pre-tenure members as they begin their careers.
