Nearly a thousand well-heeled and fashionable New Yorkers catwalked and promenaded through the Lexington Avenue Armory for the 24th annual Bailey House Auction & Party, helping to raise funds for those homeless people living with HIV/AIDS.
Bailey House - a landmark New York organization providing housing and support services for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS - will host its 24th Annual Auction and Party at the Lexington Avenue Armory on February 22, 2012.
With Sotheby’s auctioneer, Hugh Hildesley, at the podium, inciting the altruistic crowd into a bidding frenzy for items such as a date with Bravo star, Andy Cohen, or art from Robert Mapplethorpe, William Wegman, and Herb Ritts,nearly $400,000 was raised.
This fun adventure was held at Gondola Plaza, with comedic host Miss Richfield 1981 and hysterical judges. The crowd enjoyed watching the costumed skiers come down the hill accompanied by the music of their choice.
