Will You Be "Skating WIth The Stars" this year?

Before Worlds Fever overtakes the blog in the coming days, I wanted to mention an upcoming benefit while it still makes sense to do so…

The fifth annual Skating With the Stars gala is set to take place on Monday, April 6, from 5:30-9PM at Wollman Rink in Central Park (NYC). Featuring “a spectacular roster of Olympic and World Medalists” including Dorothy Hamill, Sasha Cohen, Sarah Hughes, Viktor Petrenko, Todd Eldredge, Alissa Czisny, Kimmie Meissner, Evan Lysacek, Timothy Goebel and Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, the fundraiser serves Figure Skating in Harlem’s pioneering youth development program.

And if that list of skating stars wasn’t luminous enough for you, the big names that have attended in the past are impressive too: Kelly Ripa, Mariska Hargitay, Christopher Meloni, Kimberley Locke (formerly of American Idol), and R&B singer Kelly Rowland.

This year’s Gala will honor both skating legend Tai Babilonia and New York State First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson; the night will include a dinner buffet and auction as well. Tickets start at $300 and are available by calling (212) 675-9474.
