SUMMER FOR PHILANTHROPIST JEAN SHAFIROFF

 ****
A Summer in the Life of

Philanthropist and Author Jean Shafiroff

The Exclusive 2018 Hamptons Summer Agenda
****

Jean Shafiroff





Hamptons power player Jean Shafiroff, who is best known for her philanthropic impact, can be found hosting, chairing and receiving high honors at exclusive galas and events for numerous charitable causes throughout Summer 2018. As a volunteer fundraiser, leader and spokesperson, her efforts improve the lives of underserved populations, women’s rights and wellbeing, healthcare, animal welfare and resources for children in need.



Jean serves on the boards of New York City Mission Society, French Heritage Society, Couture Council (Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology), Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services for more than 20 years, Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation Honorary Board, Southampton Bath & Tennis Club’s Charitable Foundation, and Global Strays. In addition, Jean is an Ambassador for the American Humane Society, the Ambassador-at-large for the Southampton Animal Shelter, and remains a very active Board Alumna of the New York Women’s Foundation.



For a glimpse of what Jean Shafiroff may experience day-to-day and to learn where her passion derives from, she authored a practical guide to modern giving in 2016, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make A Life By What You Give. As a philanthropist and a member of charity’s Board of Directors, giving her time, knowledge and resources can be far more valuable than the customary financial contribution.



Jean Shafiroff’s many notable events in the Hamptons this summer 2018 include:



· Southampton Hospital’s 60th Annual Summer Party

Mr. D’Elia and his family have been dedicated supporters since the Shelter’s inception. His sense of community history, and perspective on events and community happenings, put him in a unique position in setting the vision for this year’s Gala.

Missy Hargraves



The Gala was held at the stunning Southampton waterfront home of Sandra McConnell. The Foundation is immensely grateful to her for her generosity, which contributed to the huge success of the Gala, and made the evening extra special for all attending.



More than 300 guests joined the Shelter for the evening including: Greg Kelly and his wife Judith Grey, Margo and John Catsimatidis, Southampton Village Mayor Michael Irving and his wife Ellen, State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright, Missy Hargraves, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, Howard Lorber, Leslie Alexander, Deborah Hearst, Rosalie Brinton, John Bradham, Sean and Elizabeth Deneny, Wendy Wegner and Jeff Sinaw, Fr. Constantine Lazarakis, Ken and Crystal Meszkat, Henry and Barbara Gooss, Orest and Tish Bliss, Dorothy Frankel, Phyllis and Jeff Cole, Robert Lohman, and Martin Shafiroff with his and Jean Shafiroff’s daughters.



The “Junior” contingent for the evening, with nearly 50 attending, was tremendous and contributed to the energy, vibrant spirit and excitement of the evening. Juniors included Merritt Piro, Charles McConnell, Christina McConnell, Kelly Deneny, Jenny Dwork, Sarah Vacchiano and Marcy Callahan.

Michael Irving And Ellen Irving



The Chris Norton Band was fabulous, providing music for the evening. Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs treated guests to a wonderful dinner.



The Foundation is unique on the East End, taking in animals from all seven villages and 16 hamlets in the Township. With its “open admissions” policy, it accepts all animals – no matter what physical or behavioral condition, or special needs, no matter what medical condition, no matter what age. The shelter also takes in animals from neighboring towns. Shelter services are broad-based. It provides low-cost, mobile veterinary services throughout the region. Plus, it conducts educational classes in local schools on humane animal care.

Katie McEntee And James Marzigliano


The Southampton Animal Shelter is the true “community” shelter on the East End. Most significantly, the shelter’s Medical Services and the Behavior & Training program are unsurpassed. These, along with the professionalism and “match-making skills” of the Adoption Department, are the key to the shelter’s extraordinary adoption rate of 96%. Shelter staff, and its fabulous volunteers, make sure that no animal is left behind!



Wonderful humane care and the stellar adoption rate have earned the Southampton Animal Shelter both great respect in the community and a high level of national recognition. All of the proceeds from the Gala go directly to supporting the Southampton Animal Shelter and the services that make their great work possible.

Throughout the afternoon, guests played with adorable adoptable cats and dogs. A litter of kittens, a senior Jack Russell called Fred, a Golden Retriever puppy named Zeus, a red nose Pitbull named Sister Girl and a mix breed puppy named Macy were among those looking for their forever families and received a lot of attention from guests both young and old.
