Every October, hundreds of young professionals gather at the New York Public Library for a glamorous black tie ball to benefit the Catholic Big Sisters Big Brothers charity organization. The annual event is known in town as one of the most elaborate nights of the season.
Chairs this year include Marisol Tudela Blondet, Alison Carter Cognetti, Katzie Guy-Hamilton and Ariel Phipps Segal. Planning over months will lead to a colorful presentation in the landmark building. The theme for the year is An Evening in Wonderland.
Black tie is required for the event, and hats are encouraged. Guests will enjoy an open bar and live music to dance the night away.
Since 1902, the mission of the Catholic Big Sisters & Big Brothers has been to address the challenges facing youth living in New York City’s low-income neighborhoods by providing one-to-one community-based mentoring services, supported by family counseling and skill learning programs. We seek to improve the lives of children of all faiths, empowering them to recognize, reach for and achieve their full potential as self-sufficient adults.
