This week, a veritable who's who of Wall Street partied the night away at the annual Robin Hood benefit in New York City.
The non-profit, which raises raises money to fight poverty in the New York tri-state area, hosted a long list of celebrities and wealthy luminaries.
Spotted in the crowd was Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Invemed chief and Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone, KKR co-founder Henry Kravis, Bob Pittman and John Sykes of iHeart Media. Hedge fund managers Ken Griffin, Dan Och, Larry Robbins, Howard Marks and David Einhorn and venture philanthropist Peter Kiernan were also in attendance.
Restaurateur and Union Square Events head, Danny Meyer, of Shake Shack fame, created the three course meal for over four thousand people.
"The space here at the Javits Convention Center is so vast, and the crowd so varied and high-profile, that it's a thrill be part of this great cause," Meyer told CNBC. He added that his fourth consecutive time catering the Robin Hood gala was like his "own personal Super Bowl."
Entertainment for the event was provided by Usher, the Zac Brown Band and comedian Jim Gaffigain.
Also in attendance was Pershing Square Capital Founder Bill Ackman, BlackRock chairman and CEO Laurence Fink and legendary investor Paul Tudor Jones—who at one point took to the stage wearing a large hat in the shape of the human brain.
Over $61.2 million was raised by the charity, which included a $15 million pledgeby the Bezos Family Foundation. The Robin Hood Foundation has raised $2.5 billion since its inception in 1988
