The Ladies Who Lunch are still lunching — and paying for it.

On Monday, more than 130 women gathered at the Oak Room and raised $75,000 for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s pediatric department. The money will go toward The Society of MSKCC’s new pediatric family housing endowment, which helps pay for patients and families to stay at centers like the Ronald McDonald House while they’re in town for treatment.

Supporters including co-host and John Hardy creative director Guy Bedarida, as well as Anne Grauso, Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, Jennifer Creel and Kara Ross lunched on watermelon salad and slow-cooked halibut at the sold-out event. MSKCC’s director of social work, Dr. Jane A. Bowling, was recognized for her work and presented with a silver bowl by John Hardy.
