Colleen and Gary Rein

Fred’s at Barney’s was the setting for this year’s Pride of New York (PONY) Awards hosted by Colleen and Gary Rein. Renowned Chef Mark Strausman and Bobby and Jill Zarin received the 2009 PONY. Previous recipients have included Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, Jacques Pepin, and Francois Payard.

PONY raises funds for the Maryhaven Center of Hope, one of Long Island’s oldest and largest nonprofit programs helping the developmentally disabled.

Guests included Lucia Hwong Gordon, Jane and Paul Schindler, Bonnie Comley and Stewart Lane, Sandy and Dr. Larry Rosenthal, Cheryl and Dr. Albert Lefkovits, Susan and Jerry Kremer, and Gayle and Dr. Howard Sobel.

Attendees enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and dancing at the Barney’s hot spot–sans shopping.
