Power Lunching At The Plaza For A Most Wonderful Cause

by Guest of A Guest · November 19, 2023

    There are power lunches, and then there's the Power Lunch. 

    This week the Plaza's ballroom was filled to the brim with New York's most notable, distinguished names in the worlds of business, fashion, entertainment, arts, government, philanthropy, and honestly who even knows what else. The occasion? The Citymeals on Wheels 36th Annual Power Lunch. 

    MSNBC and NBC News's Stephanie Ruhle emceed the event, which honored philanthropy staple Barbara Tober and fitness innovator Joe Holder and raised $1.5 million to deliver 150,000 nourishing meals for homebound elderly New Yorkers. 

    Huma Abedin, Fabiola Beracasa, Barbara Bush, Brett Heyman, Derek Blasberg, Leigh Lezark, Natalie Massenet, Kate Young, Judith Zabar, Aerin Lauder and more attended. Curious to see who wore what for the uptown afternoon affair?
