11th Annual Women Who Care Luncheon Benefit for United Cerebral Palsy of New York City

reporter: Miguel Dominguez

"Ladies Who Lunch" for a worthy cause
Disregard the misleading caption in the photo above. This was not a "Ladies Who Lunch" get together. It was the 11th annual Women Who Care luncheon benefit for United Cerebral Palsy of New York City. It took place on May 3rd, at Cipriani 42nd Street.

To call the list of celebrities and VIP's massive is a gross understatement. They simply kept filing in non-stop, to the point where my camera battery was depleted. Prudently, I had a second one I could replace it with!

Women Who Care celebrates the accomplishments of women as caregivers, volunteers and professionals.

“Women Who Care was created to honor female role models representing various segments of the community,” says Loreen Arbus, Founder & Chair of Women Who Care. “It is a celebration of women who have deep concern for others and are passionately committed to giving back. Their extraordinary accomplishments and great character have inspired women around the world to achieve their full potential."
