NEW YORK, NY – On Thursday, October 18, 2012, The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) hosted the 24th Annual Preview Party for The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show at The Park Avenue Armory in New York.  The glamorous event was Co-Chaired by Mary Davidson, Pamela Fiori, Jamee Gregory, Eleanora Kennedy and Kamie Lightburn with Associate Chairmen Allison Aston&Sloan Overstrom.  The Celebratory Chairman was Sigourney Weaver and the Connoisseur Chairman was Shafik Gabr.  The event was generously sponsored by Architectural Digest and
