Hedge fund manager John Paulson, along with his wife Jenny, co-chaired the gala fund-raising event which took place at the 92nd Street Y in New York City at the end of May. Paulson and his wife brought along their two daughters, the younger clutching a stuffed toy dog.

“My girls went to nursery school here,” Paulson said.

The evening began in the lobby of the famed New York events space, which was decorated to give the appearance of a forest. Soon after the reception the 750 guests spread out over the building into different rooms where they were served dinner. The evening’s end came in the auditorium after Jennifer Hudson sang songs from “Dreamgirls.”

John Paulson, as co-chair, helped raise the evening’s $4.2 million take is support of the famed Upper East Side institution. The 92Y is known world-round for its eclectic programming ranging from classes to smart conversations, to poetry readings to concerts.

“The Y is a very important community and cultural center for New York City,” Paulson said. “My mother came here on dates in her teens.”
