New York City
- HRH Prince Edward came to dinner at the Core Club on May 18, and so did many of New York's boldest boldface names. They stayed to really party thanks to an amazing performance by Wyclef Jean
and his Fugee
band mates. Staid, solid, serious New Yorkers were on their feet, singing, dancing, arm waving, boogying and and having the best time. It wasn't your usual Royal event!
Peter Max, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and HRH The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
The dinner, hosted by David Hyrck
in honor of the Prince, who was visiting New York on behalf of his father, The Duke of Edinburgh's
Award Fellows Program, brought out New York's finest A-listers - Georgette Mosbacher
, Elizabeth Kabler
and Connie Jones
, Colin Cowie
, Beth Rudin deWoody
and handsome son Carlton
, Frank Burch
, Richard Smullen
, Catherine Saxton
and Clo Cohen
, the beautiful Petra Nemcova
and the always popular crowd pleaser, Dr. Ruth
Wyclef sat beside the Prince and spoke passionately about the on-going problems in his homeland
of Haiti. Then he brought the crowd to their feet, and amazed them with his feat of playing an amazing guitar track with his tongue. You had to be there - and if you were, you were a very happy partygoer - all in the cause of two great charities.
Wyclef Jean kept the guests entertained.
