Blackstone's Jon Gray, in Denim, Warms to the Social Limelight

  • Benefit raises $8 million to fight cancers linked to BRCA gene
  • Jeans were the theme at `simple, small' event at Cipriani

Tony James, the president of Blackstone Group, made sure to comply with the jeans dress code at the Basser Center for BRCA benefit honoring one of his firm’s stars, Jon Gray.

Greeting him, James, in blue denim, jacket and tie, passed on a message: at an earlier meeting of Metropolitan Museum of Art trustees, Met Chairman Dan Brodsky said the museum should honor Gray, too.
