On May 22, The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering hosted its 11th Annual Spring Ball at the iconic Plaza Hotel. The Society collaborated with Saks Fifth Avenue to celebrate the incredible evening supporting The Society’s long-standing history of important patient care and research programs at Memorial Sloan Kettering with a special fundraising initiative that contributed to The Society’s Research Grants Program.

Ron Wendt Designs transformed the ballroom into an extravagant summer garden, covering the dancefloor with peonies and adding a blast of blossoms overhead. Co-chaired by Anjali Melwani, Marcie Pantzer, Betsy Pitts, Eleanor Ylvisaker, and Roopal Patel serving as the Honorary Saks Fifth Avenue Chair, the event raised over $1 million. More than 300 guests attended the summer garden-inspired event while enjoying cocktails, dinner and sounds provided by DJ Harley Viera Newton.
