CHILD CARE: A steady stream of perfectly coiffed ladies ignored freezing temperatures and winds to attend the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Associates Council Lunch, sponsored by Shoshanna. Many had a little help in their warmth-maintenance endeavors: “Is everyone here in a fur?” remarked one woman, surveying the packed Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel. “This is an uptown crowd.”

It was also a convivial one, as many in the group, which included Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Anne Grauso, Eleanor Ylvisaker and Charlotte Ronson, hadn’t seen each other since their respective December vacations. “I feel like I haven’t seen you girls in 12 years,” said Fabiola Beracasa greeting Coralie Charriol. “It’s like a high school reunion.”

During cocktails, guests could peruse a rack of dresses from Shoshanna’s pre-fall and fall lineups to order at a discount, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Associate Council’s new initiative, the Pediatric Family Housing Endowment (proceeds from the lunch also went towards the fund). Dr. Michael La Quaglia, the chief of the hospital’s Pediatric Surgical Service, was honored at the lunch and read a series of testimonies from parents of children afflicted with cancer. Afterward, as people said their good-byes, Shoshanna Gruss explained her dedication to the cause. “I’ve never sponsored something before. I was never sure if it was right,” she said. “But this was a great fit, and it’s been a good year for me.”
