Friday night, Ann Dexter-Jones, Jennifer CreelRainer JuddJames Franco, Yvonne Force Villareal, Kate Spade, and countless others descended upon the Hispanic Society of America to celebrate with Nathalie de Gunzburg, the chairman of the Dia Art Foundation, at the Fall Gala.

Since 1974, The Dia Art Foundation has been commissioning celebrity and philanthropic support for artistic projects that may not have come to fruition without their assistance. This year, cocktails were enjoyed at The Hispanic Society of America followed by dinner at The Church of the Intercession. During the festivities, Arto Lindsay and Vinicius Cantuaria entertained the many guests with their musical talents. The event raised over $700,000 thanks to co-chairs Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, Sir Evelyn and Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, as well as Kelly Behun Sugarman and Jay Sugarman.
