People filtered in and out of the Chelsea Art Gallery in NYC Thursday night to check out twenty-five different 18" My Little Ponies customized by artists, musicians and celebrities. Each pony will be auctioned off through Charity Folks until bidding ends on October 2nd. Give Kids the World Village, a nonprofit organization providing trips to Florida for children with life-threatening illnesses.
