It can’t be easy to get people excited about your fundraiser year after year, especially when it takes place on a Saturday night. And we certainly were feeling some fatigue last month by the time we received the invitation for the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s annual A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s benefit, which took place this weekend in the ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria.
John Varvatos was honored last night at the 18th annual Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation benefit dinner and auction at Cipriani Wall Street. The "Collaborating for a Cure" event had a "Rock Out!" theme, with special musical guest John Fogerty and his band more than living up to it in a 90-minute set full of his classic Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo hits that kept attendees who had to get up in the morning on their feet until midnight
