Jean Shafiroff And Rose Hartman

At Rizzoli Bookstore in New York City recently, philanthropist Jean Shafiroff hosted an evening of summer cocktails to benefit the Southampton Animal Shelter while celebrating Rose Hartman's photography book “Incomparable Women of Style.”

Despite the teeming rain, more than 150 people came to show their support for the Southampton Animal Shelter. Jean, an honorary chair of the Shelter's upcoming benefit being held in Southampton, New York on July 20, 2013, spoke about how the Southampton Animal Shelter is ranked among the top 10% of shelters in the U.S. for its excellent care of animals.

Many books were sold with a sizable percentage of the proceeds benefiting the Shelter and its great work for animals.

Those in attendance included fashion designers Zang Toi, Victor de Souza, and Maggie Norris, Amy Hoadley, celebrity Petaluma chef Chris Coleman, Roy Kean, Craig Dix, Sudha d'Unienville, Dawne Marie Grannum, and many others.

Following her chairmanship of the Southampton Animal Shelter benefit, Jean will once more serve as the benefit chairwoman of the 55th Annual Southampton Hospital Gala to be held on August 3, 2013. This year will be Jean’s third time chairing the gala which will benefit the Jenny and John Paulson Department of Emergency Services and the Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke Center.
