Yesterday was busy at Lincoln Center!

Throughout the morning at the David Rubenstein Atrium, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Ad Council announced a national collaboration with the Miss America Organization to promote the importance of mentoring in children’s lives. Laura Kaeppeler, Miss America 2012, not only came to help make the announcement, but she also joined the kids for a special lunch and tour of Lincoln Center afterwards.

And, later that night, Diner en Blanc took place on Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza. CBS News videoed the event and reported: “More than 3,000 people dressed entirely in white overtook the courtyard of New York City’s Lincoln Center for five hours last night for quite an unusual social event. Part flash-mob, part-dinner party, not even the guests knew where this exclusive event would take place until an hour before it began.”
