The Holiday fun continues! I am pleased to announce that I’ll be hosting A Holiday Happy Hour to Benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society here in New York and you are invited. Save the date of Wednesday December 12th from 6:30-9:00PM.

The event will be a lovely evening of bubbly and elegant cocktails for a wonderful cause that is very dear to my heart: more effective treatments and a cure for cancer.

As some of you know, every year I train 500 miles so that I can complete 26.2 with Team in Training to raise funds to cure cancer.  I began fundraising and training after losing my aunt to cancer. And I won’t stop until I stop losing more of my loved ones to cancer.  I am relentless for a cure, and all donations made during A Holiday Happy Hour to Benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. Together there’s no telling what we can do.

So please join me on Wednesday December 12th for A Holiday Happy Hour to Benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, hosted by me and held at Ivy, a cozy and chic new bar on Eighth Avenue between West 57th and 56th Streets. A $10 cover charge will include drink specials all evening. For those who are unable to attend, donations can also be made directly to


I want to express my thanks to my dear friends in the interior design community who have already made generous online donations in support of my efforts with Team In Training to help find cures and more effective treatments for cancer.


Thank you to:
