Purim Ball 2013Share

More than 900 guests filled the Park Avenue Armory on February 27, 2013 for Purim Ball 2013 Who Wears the Crown? Designer David Stark transformed the Armory Drill Hall into a dramatic balloon landscape. Filmmaker and actress Lena Dunham, creator and star of HBO’s Golden Globe Award-winning series GIRLS, headlined the gala’s program as Purimspieler. Nearly 400 young patrons enjoyed a lively after-party with a DJ and dancing. The virtual journal features many wonderful tributes from those who so generously helped make the gala a great success.
