New York, NY – On the menu at the September 18th Le Cirque Luncheon for The New York Women’s Foundation (The Foundation), hosted by author and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, was a serious discussion about New York’s criminal justice system and the hardships it inflicts on youth, the poor and those facing mental health challenges, particularly women and their families.



Each year, Ms. Shafiroff brings together a diverse group of women leaders to discuss pressing social issues confronted by The Foundation and its grantee partners. This year, Hon. Jonathan Lippman, Chairman of the Independent Commission on NYC Criminal Justice and Incarceration Reform and Greg Berman, Director of the Center for Court Innovation, spoke about the changes needed to create a criminal justice system in New York that is effective and humane, one that is smart on crime, that protects public safety while treating the accused and the incarcerated, many of whom suffer from mental illness, with decency. The Commission’s report advocated for the closing of Rikers and many other systemic reforms. Judge Lippman talked of the need to make sure “the report doesn't sit on a shelf somewhere,” “to keep the heat up on the politicians” and “to rev up the motor and really get this done.”

Ana Oliveira, President & CEO of The New York Women’s Foundation, thanked Ms. Shafiroff and the attendees for their generosity and spoke of The Foundation’s commitment to promoting social and economic justice. Ms. Oliveira, who served on Judge Lippman’s commission, said that we have an opportunity to promote justice, and to create a city that does not leave anyone behind by investing in women-led, community-based organizations that are agents of change.



Ms. Shafiroff gave an impassioned plea for prison reform, noting that a disproportionate number of the incarcerated are mentally ill and poor, and that people are not disposable. She spoke of the lost youth who never recover after a stint in Rikers. She praised The Foundation for its work in helping break the cycle of poverty that devastates communities by helping women, because women are the basis of a family and that it is through them, future generations are empowered She urged her guests to continue to support The Foundation.

Greg Berman And Merble Reagon



Guests of Ms. Shafiroff at the invitation-only event, a prelude to The Foundation’s upcoming fall gala on October 2nd at The Plaza, included New York’s notables from the worlds of business, nonprofits and philanthropy. Attendees included New York State Assemblywoman Rebecca Seawright, Mary McCormick, President of the Fund for the City of New York, Marco Maccioni, son of restaurateur Sirio Maccioni, Rachel Hirschfeld, animal rights activist and lawyer, and Bonnie Comley, three-time Tony Award winning producer. Other notables include Natalie Ross, Dawne Marie Grannum, Randi Schatz, Elizabeth Shafiroff, Christine Schott Ledes, Penny Grant, Katlean de Monchy and Paola Bacchini.

Carson, Ph.D., CEO of Silicon Valley Community Foundation; Dr. Angela Diaz, Professor and Director of the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center; and Verna Eggleston, head of the Women’s Economic Development initiatives at Bloomberg Philanthropies.

JEAN SHAFIROFF IS COVER FEATURE IN N.Y. LIFESTYLES

Jean Shafiroff





Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was profiled this month in New York Lifestyles Magazine. 



Jean Shafiroff is quick to downplay her accomplishments as a philanthropist, public speaker, and author. But the fact is that she has earned many honors for her efforts as a humanitarian. Even with that fact in mind, she will swiftly tell you that it was only through hard work and teamwork that she is able to fundraise and chair several charity events each year as she does. Her book, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life By What You Give (Hatherleigh Press), gathers her years of expertise into a guide on how to be a philanthropist through time, knowledge, and available financial resources. She brings awareness to notable charitable causes, including the ones that she has devoted her life to women’s rights, animal rights, and children’s welfare.




Shafiroff sits on the boards of the New York City Mission Society, New York Women’s Foundation, French Heritage Society, Couture Council (Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology), Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. Also, there’s Southampton Animal Shelter Honorary Board, Southampton Bath and Tennis Club Charitable Foundation, and Global Strays, a nonprofit founded by her daughter, Elizabeth Shafiroff, and Lindsey Spielfogal. Additionally, she has been appointed as an ambassador for the American Humane Society. Shafiroff holds an MBA from the Graduate School of Business at Columbia University and a BS in physical therapy from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

THE ZANG TOI FASHION WEEK MAGNIFICENT COLLECTION

FASHION WEEK NYC

Jean Shafiroff With Zang Toi
 
Patti Labelle With Ivana Trump



Bella Oelmann With David Foster, Kimberly Guilfoyle And Bill Hemmer



Zang Toi's fabulous Spring 2018 collection was shown at Skylight Clarkson Square last night for fashion week. 



 Zang is a Malaysian born designer who is known to dress royalty and society -- and is one of those fashion stars whom everybody adores. Zang is famous for his elaborately embroidered velvet capes and caftans but today he showed he was a proficient designer who can master all genres. The clothing was much more demure than a typical Zang show but the beauty was still there. Zang is a perfectionist and it showed in every aspect of the presentation including the Zang Toi heels and jewelry chokers that adorned the model's necks. Zang is a master at color blocking and today he mixed emerald green and black, turquoise and white, green and gray, and white and black. He even showed his mastery of pants with an embroidered green sequined butterfly design that adorned gray silk pants. His use of taffeta, silk and cotton was luxuriously elegant and the crowd loved the collection.

Zang Toi Fashion



 Some of the luminaries who attended included: Ivana Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Patti Labelle, Jean Shafiroff, Carol Alt, and David Foster David Foster, the legendary music producer, said he could easily see fashion icon Celine Dion in one of the diaphanous gowns and loved the movement of the clothing. Phillip Bloch, Melania Trump's friend, was also fond of the collection and said he would love to style the new first lady since he considers her a close friend and wishes the President would take some fashion cues from Melania.



 It is fair to say Zang, with this collection, increased his audience by including a more understated pared down look that a twenty something in St. Tropez could easily wear. He also added some whimsical touches such as the handkerchief skirt that Zang sketch printed on and the green diaphanous skirt that hung from the black and white dress-the Sade background music added to the sultriness of these pieces. There was still plenty of opulence including the black velvet gown with an emerald green bodice, and the silk princess coat with emerald taffeta that concluded the collection; but this presentation showed Zang is one of those designers that can expand his breadth and increase his audience. If that wasn't exciting enough, guests headed to 1046 Lexington Avenue to celebrate the opening of the new Zang Toi boutique-another notch in Zang's ever expanding empire.

Mrs. Shafiroff, and IFC Films hosted the New York premiere of IFC Films’ Rebel In The Rye.



In Rebel in the Rye, actor Nicholas Hoult brings young, reclusive author J.D. Salinger to life. The film tells the true story of how Holden Caulfield – the fictional character in J.D.‘s famous 1951 novel “The Catcher in the Rye” – was created.

About Rebel In The Rye


The world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this revealing look at the experiences that shaped one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time. Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, Rebel in the Ryefollows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life. Costarring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson, Rebel in the Rye offers a tantalizing window into the life and times of a little-understood genius who broke the rules and redefined American literature.

Jean Shafiroff In Social Life



Social Life -- Jean Shafiroff ’s world may seem filled with glamorous
charity balls, but the reality of her day-to-day life is filled with
hard work. The author and humanitarian brings a strong consideration
for people and animals to all that she does for charities
in the Hamptons and beyond. Shafiroff, who was most
recently honored by the Southampton Animal Shelter, wholeheartedly
dedicates herself to elevating several causes. She does
this by chairing or otherwise organizing memorable fundraisers
with humility and grace. She also gives generously of her
own time and resources. Her goal? To inspire potential donors’
enthusiasm for the organizations whose causes she believes in.
“Local organizations especially rely on summer fundraisers to
survive,” says Shafiroff. “Without the capability to fundraise, a
lot of these groups would have a very difficult time.”

After Mr. Kelly welcomed guests, he asked Mr. Chaloner to the stage, who revealed that after a decade of discussion, Southampton Hospital was officially a part of the Stony Brook Medicine health care system, which allows patients at the hospital access to significant resources and advanced technology. The collaboration includes a new cardiac catheterization laboratory, part of The Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center and the Phillips Family Cancer Center, which will make top-level cancer care more readily available to East End residents.

Southampton Mayor Michael Irving And Ellen Irving





Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is recognized by the NYS Department of Health as a provisional Level III adult trauma center, the first one on Long Island’s East End. This designation enables the Hospital to provide care to the most critically injured patients. During the summer season when the regional population swells, it is even more critically important that trauma care be accessible close by. Faster treatment for trauma patients can mean the difference between life and death, so support for this essential service is vital.
