One of the best things this year is my involvement with Philanthropic Capital Advisors. The opportunity to work within the business of philanthropy is an invaluable education. And then there are the luncheons! (see also Madeleine Albright) With the flawless implementation of the party by Shiraz and HL Group, we filled Cheryl’s dining room with the fascinating and talented to raise money for The Bowery Mission, City Harvest and Food Bank for New York City. Everyone relaxed and had a great time. To top it off, Rocco DiSpirito (who has a new book coming out about healthy cooking *thanks!*) was chef extraordinaire. He is gracious and kind and took time to mingle and chat.
And we made Page Six!
