About Last Night... The L.E.S. Girls Club Willow Awards and Benefit Gala

Caroline Torem-Craig

Last Night, PAPERMAG headed to the Lower Eastside Girls Club Willow Awards and Benefit Gala, hosted by former PAPER cover girl Rosario Dawson. The event was held at Jing Fong, which, if you Google it, is described by reviewers as a "second floor gargantuan dining hall decorated in blood red for the 'chicken-feet-eating crowd.'" The restaurant also features one of the tallest escalators in New York! Musical giant (also a former PAPER cover star) Moby DJ-ed and told us that he hopes all goes well on Election Day! Ana Matronic and her Scissor-Sister-in-law Aimee Phillips were present, and tucked away in another corner was Piper Perabo. Artists Donald Baechler, Tom Otterness, Kiki Smith and Robert Gober created unique art pieces for the live auction. After everyone was seated, there was an empty table, and the press was invited to dine on the delicious family-style Chinese food!
