The evening festivities, held at Stephan Weiss Studio, brought distinguished guests from art, fashion, entertainment, and philanthropic activities together. Notable attendees included Agnes Gund, Bill Powers, Chloe Wise, Chris Salgardo, Courtney Crangi, Dayssi Olarte de Kanovas, Glori Cohen, Ivan Argote, and Jen Brill.

Forty-five guests joined RxArt founder Diane Brown and the honorees for an intimate dinner curated by Peter Callahan before joining the PARTY, where DJ April Hunt and DJ Juss played. A specialty craft cocktail, Cuerpo de Cielo, was provided by Casa Dragones Tequila and served by Employees Only bartender Ulysses Vidal.

The evening culminated in a live auction led by Sara Friedlander, Christie’s senior vice president and head of Post-War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale, where pieces by Pruitt and Ed Ruscha surpassed bid estimates. All proceeds helped raise funds that will enable the organization to expand its reach and continue to transform pediatric hospital and healthcare environments through site-specific installations by contemporary artists.
