We attended the Handing Our Children a Brighter Future gala for A Caring Hand: The Billy Esposito Foundation last night at the Altman Building. Hosted by Susan Espositio, founder and daughter of Billy Esposito, the elegant and sophisticated gala had a carnival theme with elements of juvenile charm, like a cotton candy machine, make your own cupcakes and centerpieces of colorful licorice and oversized lollipops.

Who cares for A Caring Hand? VIPS like Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo & Cardine Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton, LuAnn de Lesseps, Countess of the Real Housewives of NYC, and Ethan Zohn, Winner of Survivor, Africa, who was honored, showed their support for the organization, which raised 250,000 for its mission to meet bereaved children and families wherever they are in their grief and fulfill their needs in a caring and knowledgeable environment.
