A New York tradition since 1989, the Society’s Preview Party routinely raises well over half-a-million dollars, with 100% of the profits going to the Society’s patient care, research and education programs at MSKCC. For the past twenty-two years, this fall classic provides tremendous support for the tireless work of the Society. The International Show features sixty-seven of the world’s most influential dealers, with art and antiques ranging from furniture and rare books to jewelry and glass. The Preview Party offers the Society’s members, New York’s notable art and antique dealers and collectors, and leaders in fashion and design, an exclusive and private preview of the fair’s sensational showcase before it opens to the public the following day.
