If a tree falls in the woods and no one puts it on the Frick’s benefit board, does it make a sound? Certainly not a splash: the art museum boasts some of the biggest names on the charity circuit, and their Young Fellows Ball boasts some of the cheapest tickets to rub elbow with these European art swans.
Last night the event, hosted at the museum, raised over $240,000 for the philanthropy after selling 600 tickets. That comes out to $400 a head…not chump change, but cheaper than the cost of some of the more expensive charity galas out there. Not that anyone skipped on the outfits…
