Celebrating 20 Years of The October Ball


New York Public Library was home to the 20th Annual October Ball, where a few hundred party-goers and philanthropist gathered to celebrate a worthy cause. This year’s October Ball benefited Catholic Big Sisters & Big Brothers (CBSBB). CBSBB strives to empower the children of New York to recognize, reach for and achieve their full potential. With charitable events like The October Ball, it helps CBSBB accomplish so much.

The evening boasted an open bar, sweet & savory food stations, two entertainment acts, a three-tiered auction and plenty of perfect photo-op moments to capture the stunning black-tie affair – not to forget the hats and fascinators to fit this year’s An Evening in Wonderland theme! One of our favorite moments was watching everyone on the dance floor, dancing to the sounds of DJ Nicole Rose who spun a lot of hits. The new Visionaries Lounge or VIP area honored the October Ball’s Sponsors, Benefactors and CBSBB’s greatest supporters featuring specialty champagne, private bar, and reserved seating. Chairs included Marisol Tudela Blondet, Alison Carter Cognetti, Katzie Guy-Hamilton and Ariel Phipps Segal.
