It’s time for one of the season’s most glittering charitable celebrations. UNICEF is throwing its snow-ball—the annual Snowflake Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street. Tonight’s honorees include Harry Belafonte, the calypso singer-turned-humanitarian, and U.S. Fund for UNICEF board member Dolores Rice Gahan; they’ll be serenaded by Tony Bennett and the Wynton Marsalis Quartet. The star power doesn’t end there—after a quiet Thanksgiving week, the city’s firmament of stars comes out tonight, including host committee members Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael Douglas and Sir Roger Moore (please, no one ask him what he thought of the Bond-franchise-reinventing Skyfall!).
Cipriani 42nd Street, 110 East 42nd Street, reception at 6:30pm, dinner and program at 7:30pm, after party at 10:30pm, tickets and information can be found at http://snowflake.unicefusa.org/snowflake-ball/
