The Belvedere Ball drew an elite crowd to benefit Central Park.
THE PARTY The Central Park Conservancy hosted its first Belvedere Ball to raise funds for the landmark. The winter-inspired tent featured a white leafless tree making a frosty statement along with an ethereal projection of Belvedere Castle over the bar, which was well-stocked with Belvedere Vodka, of course. THE GUEST Fe Fendi, Gayle King, Norma Dana, Violetta Komyshan, and Suzie and Ainar Aijala mingled with philanthropists, investment bankers, interior designers and more. DJ Kiss kept the crowd dancing following the dinner reception. THE HIGHLIGHTS The Central Park Conservancy honored Douglas Blonsky, president and CEO of the conservancy and Central Park administrator, for his 32 years of service to the organization. Supported by Northern Trust, the event raised more than $2 million to beautify and enhance the magnificent Central Park. -Erica Commisso
