Paterson, Babilonia To Be Honored in Harlem Tonight The Big Apple’s Wollman Rink will welcome a who’s who of the big city and Hollywood. Non-profit organization “Figure Skating in Harlem” will honor Michelle Paige Paterson, wife of New York Governor David Paterson and ice-skating star Tai Babilonia at the 5th annual “2009 Skating With the Stars” gala on April 6th. The pair will play an integral part in the gala’s mission to raise funds for young New York City girls who use ice-skating as their refuge. Participants will have the chance to skate alongside Babilonia and other renowned skaters at the rink located in Central Park. Talk show host Star Jones and daytime soap star Tamara Tunie serve as the Gala’s co-chairs. “I’m Every Woman” singer Whitney Houston is one of the many members who sit on the 2009 Benefit Committee.
