A favorite charity of the design community, the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House hosted “High Society,” its annual Spring Gala Benefit at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City, raising $1,350,000 for the charity.
The evening, sponsored by VERANDA magazine, featured 41 tables, each decorated by a renowned designer who used the High Society theme as his or her inspiration.
Bunny Williams and John Rosselli served as Honorary Design Chairs for the gala, which honored Caroline and Thompson Dean, long-time board members and generous supporters of the Neighborhood House.

Since 1894, the Neighborhood House has served those in need who live, work or attend school on the East Side of Manhattan. It provides an extensive array of effective and integrated human services—social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness—which significantly improve the lives of 20,000 people in need each year.
