Metropolitan Magazine and 25A Magazine’s Publisher Chase Backer and Editor-In-Chief Christopher A. Pape hosted a party to celebrate Author & Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, on the cover of Metropolitan Magazine and 25A Magazine’s April 2017 issues. The invitation-only event, honoring the Cinco De Mayo celebration of Mexican and American culture, took place at Selina Rosa Restaurant on Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
Notable attendees included: cover star Jean Shafiroff, Christopher A.

In the April 2017 issues of Metropolitan Magazine and 25A Magazine, Jean Shafiroff opens up about her humanitarian efforts for various organizations that she supports, and explains her practical and often glamorous approach to fundraising. “I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re here for a reason”, says Shafiroff in an exclusive interview that focuses on her inspiring career as a philanthropist. “We have to do what we can to improve the lives of future generations. We have to be socially aware and we have to do something to enact change.”
