The Juniors Committee of the New England Society will be hosting a historic event as an ode to the first NES reception open to women, held 151 years ago on February 6, 1872 at Delmonico's. The original 1872 event netted a $281.15 profit and “all agreed to hold it annually.”

As our members know, NES was founded in 1805 with the goal of promoting "friendship, charity and mutual assistance" among and on behalf of New Englanders living in New York. We look forward to celebrating the many women who have contributed to NES over the past 151 years.


Join us Thursday, February 23rd at the Players Club from 7:00 to 9:00 PM for passed hors d’oeuvres as well as wine, beer, and soft drinks. Be sure to register soon as possible as the price will go up February 17th to $200 per ticket.
