100 Women gala raises $2.5 million


In its fourth annual gala fundraiser, industry association 100 Women in Hedge Funds raised more than $2.5 million for the National Ovarian Cancer Early Detection Program at the NYU Cancer Institute.

The November 16 gala featured a fashion presentation of Faconnable's new line of women's clothing in partnership with Vogue magazine. It also included a live auction of luxury items and one-of-a-kind experiences, such as a private cooking lesson with the celebrity chef Todd English at his new restaurant Olives in the W Hotel Union Square.
