During the luncheon, the hostess Jean Shafiroff, wearing a pink and yellow silk Zac Posen dress, toasted the French and then gave a short speech honoring the 86 people who lost their lives to terrorism in Nice on Bastille Day one year ago. She then spoke of the need for our country to unite and avoid fighting with one another during these difficult times. She said our enemies would want to see us fighting with one another so that we would weaken as a nation. Jean then repeated the famous quote, "United we stand, divided we fall", a saying originally attributed to Aesop but then later used by several leaders in the United States including Abraham Lincoln. Ms.Shafiroff announced that she would give a donation to the French Heritage Society in honor of the French and her guests.

Bastille Day, the French national holiday, commemorates the storming of the Bastille, which took place on July 14, 1789 and marked the beginning of the French Revolution. The Bastille was a prison and a symbol of the absolute and arbitrary power of Louis the 16th's Ancient Regime. By capturing this symbol the people signaled that the king's authority should be limited by a separation of powers.

About the American Heart Association



The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases. The Dallas-based association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. To learn more or to get involved, call 1-800-AHA-USA1, visit heart.org or call any of our offices around the country.



The Hamptons Heart Ball, is a fun and elegant event focused on raising funds for the mission of the American Heart Association. Friends and colleagues from NYC, Long Island and the Hamptons enjoyed the beautiful setting of the Hamptons while eating delicious heart healthy foods catered by Elegant Affairs, drinking delightful wines and having fun dancing to the music of That 70’s Band all night long.
