To Do Tuesday: Prep School Blues

The Paradise Fund, which throws annual casino-themed fund-raisers in Palm Beach each year, is mixing things up by hosting an evening cocktail party for its new branch based in New York. The cause is good—distributing money to groups like St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital—but you’re not on the list anyhow! Meanwhile, the 92nd Street Y deals with an entirely different exclusive New York institution—private schools. Columbia Grammar and Preparatory headmaster Richard Soghoian speaks to former CNN news-lady and Pale Male bête noire Paula Zahn about the funding crisis in private schools. (Yes, you bet there is one!)

Paradise Fund cocktail party, SoHo, invitation only; 92nd Street Y, Kaufmann Concert Hall, 1395 Lexington Avenue, 6pm, tickets and information can be found at
