THE SCENE:  The 18th annual Winter Wonderland Ball at New York Botanical Garden drew an international crowd of the social elite including A-list celebrities and several VIP sociables with strong Texas ties. Presented by David Yurman, the ball hosted more than 400 guests who mingled throughout the magnificent Holiday Train Show in the bright and spectacular Enid A. Haupt Conservatory for an evening of three of our favorite things: good food, good times and most importantly a great cause.

THE VIBE:  The black tie-clad crowd featured dapper men in their finest formal attire while the women looked stunning in beautiful and festive ball gowns. The high-energy crowd beamed an infectious, fun vibe that seeped through the grounds, from the cocktail hour underneath the gleaming dome in the Palms of the World Gallery, to the delicious five star dinner that had the crowd buzzing, and finally dancing the night away. Guests with Texas ties included Grace Givens, Hayden Lasher McGuiness, Patti Ruiz-Healy and co-chair Natalie Bloomingdale. Other co-chairs of the event included Angelo Bianchi, Georgina Bloomberg, Giovanna Campagna, Martin Dawson, Micaela Erlanger, May Kwok, Arianna Rockefeller, Gaby Rosen, Gillian Hearst Simonds and Timo Weiland.

THE CAUSE: The evening raised over $300,000 to support the New York Botanical Garden’s renowned children’s education programs, which inspire underserved children in the Bronx with a connection to nature through workshops and hands-on activities including the Edible Academy, which promotes the benefits of plant-based nutrition.
