On March 11, 2010, the March of Dimes 35th Annual Beauty Ball was held at the upscale Cipriani 42nd Street. The one and only Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show was the host for this wonderful event, which has raised more than $32 million, over the past 34 years, to benefit the March of Dimes New York Division in support of the Prematurely Awareness Campaign.
The honorees for the evening were the Executive Vice President of Sales Promotion, Marketing and E-Commerce for Belk, Inc. who received the Retailer of the Year Award and Neil J. Katz, of Parlux Fragrances, Inc. who received the Beautiful Apple Award.
Gabriela Casella, who attended the Beauty Ball, has benefited from the March of Dimes’ efforts in the “regionalization of Neonatal Intensive Care Units” (NICUs). When Gabriela was born on December 25, 1998, she weighed 2 pounds and 4 ounces. For two months, Gabriela stayed in a NICU where she received crucial help close to home.
