Jill Zarin last summer assembled a substantial group of great companies with their products and services, summoned all her VIP and celebrity friends to come to her new beautiful digs and threw a spectacular party…all to benefit The Eric Trump Foundation for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
So this summer she is planning to do it again, happening soon.
Last year’s event was sponsored by Douglas Elliman and The European Wax Center. The first annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon was a major success in raising both money and awareness for one of the country’s premier hospitals that focuses on pediatric catastrophic diseases.
Guests and celebrities in attendance included Christie Brinkley, Patti Stanger, Kathy Wakile ( RHONJ) , Taylor Dayne (singer), Countess Luann Delesseps (RHONY), Aviva Drescher ( RHONY), Dina Lohan, Melissa Beste ( CEO of A-K-R-I-S), Tatianna Platt, Carol Alt, , radio show host Rita Cosby and Chef David Burke. All were thrilled as they mingled, munched, sipped and shopped giving a portion of the proceeds to the charity. Coveted gift bags were filled with products from Warren- Tricomi, Tamara Magel, Ultimate Vodka, Hamptons Popcorn, Trump Winery, Skweez Couture, Jill Zarin Jewelry, Temptu, Mophie & BG Couture.
