Socialites And Models Party For The Children

by TIFFANY ETESSAMI · April 9, 2010

[Photos by Billy Farrell and Joe Schildhorn for PMc] Actors, models, designers and socialites gathered at the Mandarin Oriental last night to support a great cause: The 7th Annual New Yorkers for Children Spring Dinner Dance, New Year's in April: A Fool's Fete, presented by Akris.-

As Tiiu Kuik jumped around in her extravagant princess gown with Zac Posen, Selita Ebanks chatted up Joe Zee over dinner. The Tinz showed up solo in a purple minidress and matching hot pink clutch and heels.

Anna Porcella Pinheiro and Lauren Remington Platt posed for the cameras in their gorgeous gowns. Not to be outdone, Allison Aston, Lydia Fenet and Coralie Charriol Paul hammed it up on the dance floor.

No one forgot the reason they were there, though. Through a silent auction, guests raised money for the children living in foster care in New York. With over 16,000 kids in foster care in NYC, NYFC strives to provide them with as many opportunities as possible to ensure a successful future.
