After getting us in touch with our inner child earlier in the week with her confidence-booster, head-banded socialite Arden Wohl’s treating us to a cupcake—or five! Tonight, she hosts a fund-raiser for Barack Obama with vegan cupcakes she baked herself at Little Cupcake Bakeshop. Hope they pair well with cocktails … Meanwhile, Jean and Martin Shafiroff, among others, celebrate the city’s grown-up women at the New York Women’s Foundation 25th Anniversary Celebration, honoring a quarter-century of working to bring women out of poverty. Connie Chung serves as mistress of ceremonies and Tony-Award-winning playwright Sarah Jones performs; we doubt there’ll be any cupcakes for this serious-minded crew!
Little Cupcake, 30 Prince Street, 7pm, tickets and information can be found at littlecupcake.eventbrite.com; New York Women’s Foundation, Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, 6:30pm, tickets and information can be found at nywf.org.
