PC Moment: Lady Gaga BFF/Texas-born designer Brandon Maxwell, presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, was highlight of the evening benefiting the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation along with the celebratory parade of sarcoma survivors. Christine and Ty Hoffer and Stephanie and Ernie Cockrell chaired the festive evening that had its serious moments with heartfelt tributes to three honorees — Alia Rdissi, Lisa L. Wang, and Dr. Vinod Ravi. Tenenbaum Classic JewelersTony Bradfield and Kevin Black bedazzled the gathering with a cache of jewels for the “bidder’s choice” auction and a gold pendant for the champagne pull.
