JBFCS' Annual Spring Benefit

Lani and I have been fortunate since we began our blogging adventures to find ourselves in places we would never dream. Last week we found ourselves sipping cocktail and walking the red carpet amongst Manhattan's elite during JBFCS' Annual Spring Benefit, Made in New York, which celebrated the work and support of media and music mogul, Russell Simmons, JBFCS Board of Trustees Chairman, John A Herrmann, and JBFCS Vice President David F. Everett.

The event was held at Guastavino’s a truly beautiful venue that I would never have known existed at the foot of the Queensboro Bridge! With high arched ceilings, large glass windows it was the perfect backdrop to the evenings events.

During cocktails there were various musical performances and meet Sir Shadow , a terrific one line artist who was creating original drawings on site for guests to enjoy!

The cocktails and seated cocktail dinner was to raise funds for a great cause with proceeds going towards JBFCS’ 175 community-based programs, residential facilities, and day-treatment centers that annually serve over 65,000 New Yorkers-in-need of all faiths, races and cultures through a comprehensive network of mental health and social services to promote well-being, resilience and self-sufficiency for both individuals and families. The event raised over $800,000 so should be considered a definite success!!!

Before stepping out for the evening we managed to catch a quick glimpse of honoree Russell Simons and girlfriend/model Katie Rost.
