The evening benefited the John Szarkowski Fund for photography acquisitions at The Museum of Modern Art. John Szarkowski (1925-2007) was the director of MoMA's Department of Photography from 1962 to 1991, and his exhibitions, books, and other activities and programs greatly enriched the understanding and appreciation of the art of photography. [[4]]MoMA's John Szarkowski Fund, an endowment to support photography acquisitions, will help to ensure the growth and vitality of the collection that he did so much to nurture.

The event raised $280,000 and was attended by over 700 guests. Co-chairs were Jo Carole Lauder, Peter Norton, and Richard E. Salomon. Honorary co-chairs were Agnes Gund, Marie-Josée Kravis, Robert B. Menschel, David Rockefeller, and Jerry I. Speyer.
