The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering will host the Opening Night of the International Show (previously known as the Preview Party for the International Fine Art & Antiques Show) for the 27th year running. The benefit will be chaired by Elle Decor editor in chief Michael Boodro, and has a 1,000-person guest list that includes event co-chairs Jennifer Creel, Melanie Seymour Holland, Naomi Waletzky, Martha Webster and Julia Weld. The yearly International Show consistently raises over $500,000 to benefit the society’s programs at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Sixty-seven arts and antiques dealers will showcase their furniture, glass, rare books, jewelry and other objects this year, and Opening Night will serve as a special preview of the wares. “We are delighted to continue the society’s long-standing tradition of hosting the Opening Night of the International Show,” said Lavinia Branca Snyder, president of The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering. “This remarkable event unites the worlds of art and philanthropy together for a great cause in supporting integral programs at MSKCC.”
Tickets for Opening Night range from $200 to $5,000; contact Charlotte Reardon at The Society of MSK by phone at 212-639-2103 or via email for details.
