White Cross Ball of New York City Benefits the Order of Malta’s International Humanitarian Works

The White Cross Ball of New York City took place at The Metropolitan Club in Manhattan. The Ball welcomed His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan and Ball patron HSH Prince Charles-Henri de Lobkowicz. The Ball raised money for three of the Order of Malta‘s international humanitarian works: The Holy Family Hospital of Bethlehem Foundation; Malteser International, Order of Malta Worldwide Relief; and The Order of Malta’s summer camps for disabled youth.

Guests enjoyed drinks, dinner, dancing with music by DJ Ana Boo, as well as portraits by Deanna First. The auction included luxury items and experiences from Mikimoto, Louis XIII, Stubbs & Wootton, and more.
