This week I had the pleasure of attending the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Gala as a guest of my dear friend Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings. The Gala was held at Starrett Lehigh bulding in Manhattan, which houses the offices of Martha Stewart Omnimedia. According to Martha, "The Center for Living is designed to provide out patients with whole patient care, including medical examinations, advice about diet and exercise, and the all important need for care giving. Simply stated, the main focus of the center is to teach how to grow old gracefully, something we should all start focusing on around the age of fifty."
The event was emceed by Liz Smith and honored legendary editor and journalist Sir Harold Evans. More than one million dollars was raised. There is still time to bid on some great items to contribute to the Center for Living by visiting Charitybuzz.com, including an ULTIMATE wedding package provided by Darcy Miller valued at almost $10,000.
