In The Hamptons: American Humane Honors Jean Shafiroff as Humane Hero at ‘Howl at the Moon’ Cocktail Party

As the sun set over the Wolffer Estate vineyard Wine Stand in Sagaponack, American Humane hosted a special cocktail party, Howl at the Moon, to honor American Humane Board Member Jean Shafiroff as a Humane Hero.

Jean Shafiroff, who is an American Humane board member, has been the national spokesperson for the Feed the Hungry campaign which raised $1 million to provide 1 million meals at over 100 shelters and has hosted several fundraisers since its launch.

While helping raise funds, Jean also donated generously to the cause and has appeared on national television programs numerous times for interviews promoting the campaign — we can’t think of anyone else who is more deserving.

The vineyards provided the perfect backdrop to the event was a tremendous success with over 150 guests, many of whom brought their own dogs — which only added to the fun evening. Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Society’s President & CEO started things off talking about the significance of the event before introducing Philanthropist and American Humane Board member, Jean Shafiroff. Jean gave a speech announcing that she was honored to serve as National Spokesperson for the American Humane Society.

Notable attendees included: Jean Shafiroff, Jack Hubbard (CFO American Humane) Jay Schneiderman, (Southampton Town Supervisor), Robert Chaloner (President Southampton Hospital), Mirella Cameron Riley, Brenda Simmon (President of The Southampton African American Museum), Steven Stoleman, Loretta Davis (President of the Retreat), Laura Sheehan, Meghan McCartney, Dawn Assenzio, Jane Hanson, Bill McCuddy , Lee Fryd, Steven Stoleman and Sylvia Hemmingway.
