Solange Shuts Down the Spring Ball

At the annual Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering event.

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

Who: Upper East Side mainstays like Tory Burch, Aerin Lauder, Shoshanna Gruss, Lauren DuPont, Muffie Potter Aston and Jamie Tisch. Solange Knowles closed down the evening with a performance.

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.
