The holiday season is at last behind us, leaving a trail of Kindles, iProducts, and New Year's resolutions, all to be broken. But here’s one promise we can keep—to sustain the spirit of giving. And when New Yorkers do charity, we do it in style. Soon there'll be more fetes than you can shake a Chanel at. So which galas to attend? We've done the work for you, profiling the top ten stomping grounds of the city’s most well-heeled philanthropists. Whether you’re fighting for the arts, a cure for cancer, a greener New York, or the life of a child, here’s a chance to raise money for the causes you love and have a fabulous time doing it!

Since it's still early in the season, event information is liable to change. So check back often with Guest of a Guest for all the latest charity news.
