Last night at Cipriani Wall Street, the Exploring the Arts Gala honored the billionaire entrepreneur John Kluge on his 95th birthday. Started by singer Tony Bennett and former teacher Susan Benedetto, the organization brings art-enriched programming to public schools. The star-studded benefit hosted by Nathan Lane included guests Bill Clinton, former New York governor Mario Cuomo, actor Bruce Willis, Regis Philbin and Dr. Ruth.. K.D. Lang performed, as did the founder and celebrated performer, Mr. Bennett. The live entertainment was the ideal complement to a beautifully set seated dinner, all making for a truly memorable evening and successful fundraiser.
