The cocktail party was held to celebrate The Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery’s upcoming Gala, which will take place in Washington D.C. on October 17th. Guests included Dan Ackroyd, Michael and Eleanora Kennedy, Jennifer Maguire, Glenn Horowitz and Tracey Jackson, John Alexander and Fiona Waterstreet, Ruth Appelhof, Noreen Buckfire, Jenny Conant, Elfi Eicke, Maximilian Michael Eicke, David and Karen Fleiss, Michael Haverland, Yaz and Valentine Hernandez, Marci Klein and Andrew Reyniak, Elizabeth Kircik, Alexandra Loeb, Jenny Landey, Christopher Mason, Ann Nitze, Josh Oshikopekhai, Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee, Anne Van Rensselaer & Grace Johnson, Christopher Reynolds, George Rogers, Ava Roosevelt and Christopher Twardy, Dame Jillian Sackler DBE and Sir Ivan Wilzig.

During the event, host Sally Quinn shared the exciting news that her husband Ben Bradlee, the vice president at-large of The Washington Post, received a phone call from the White House announcing he is being awarded the American Medal of Freedom. Bradlee also fielded a lot of questions about the purchase of Post by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos!
