Held at The Mansion at Colonial Terrace in Cortlandt Manor, guests enjoyed plenty of food and lots in the form of entertainment—a "foggy, eerie entrance," mingling vampires, jugglers, an aerial performance, a dance performance of a Venetian waltz and tango, and more.
This year the beneficiary for the event was Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. All the proceeds from the ball go to "cutting edge angiogenesis research," in the hopes that manipulations of a person's blood can treat and eventually cure the cancer in his or her own body, organizers said.
The foundation is named for a woman who was best known as Kathy or Kat. She was a Queens-native who grew up in Yorktown Heights and spent most of her adult life in Peekskill. She died at in 2001 at the age of 48, after a four-year battle with cancer.
