Despite the snow, today marks the first day of spring, and with the new season, charities across New York City are preparing to take advantage of the nicer weather with their annual spring galas and events. The themes this year range from The Met's “China: Through the Looking Glass” to “Gangs of New York,” and everything in between. However, the 'new' Whitney Museum opening this spring is the talk of the town - it might even top Wintour's Met Gala as THE event to see and be seen at this season. The one thing that is certain is that these events are sure to bring together many of New York's best dressed and most eligible, all for a cause. We've rounded up the best, most talked about, and most prestigious charity events going on this spring. Click through to plan your calendar!
