We told you about this event back in March, so we wanted to issue a gentle reminder that now May 12 is not so far away. But, don't worry, you still have time to score tix to one of NYC's most, well, rocking charity parties on the social circuit. The event in question is fittingly called Art Rocks! New York 2011 , a benefit and auction at the Bowery Hotel to raise funds for the life-changing Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University Medical Center. Committed to caring for the 8 million people with diabetes in the New York area, the Center's annual youth-oriented fundraiser attracts familiar faces to the fashion flock, including Alexandra and Theodora Richards, Olivia Palermo, and Charlotte Ronson. This year, two of our top dudes, Chris Benz and Brad Goreski, are serving as hosts-with-the-mosts, while Kanon Vodka will be providing unlimited drinks to help you get wasted for a cause. Also on tap? An am-azing art auction from some of NYC's hottest young artists—this year's roster includes Andrew Kuo, Brendan Lynch, Austin Peters, Gordon Stevenson, and Rene Abythe. We suggest planning your outfit now...
