Friday Night Lights
What do you do when you’re opening a New York City outpost of your L.A.-based charitable organization—one that encourages artists of all stripes to dedicate their time and talent to children who are battling serious medical conditions—and you want to drum up support? If you’re the Art of Elysium’s Jennifer Howell, you enlist four of the best-connected young arts and media types in town to throw a fabulous dance party. The actress Joy Bryant, Vogue‘s Sara Moonves, soon-to-be-Columbia alum Bee Shaffer, and InStyle‘s Nicole Vecchiarelli are hosting the charity’s first New York benefit, dubbed “Bright Lights, New City,” this Friday night, May 1, and they’ve pulled out all the stops—booking the newly renovated Jane Hotel, rounding up Santigold to perform and DJ Matt Creed to man the tables, and inviting all of their designer and model friends to attend. In other words, this isn’t going to be a stuffy old benefit. Grab one of the remaining $100 tickets by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and put on your party dress.
