Philanthropist and author Jean Shafiroff hosted her Annual Bastille Day Luncheon at upscale restaurant Ristorante Morini on New York’s Upper East Side. The 46 distinguished guests enjoyed a specialty menu created by Michael White. In honor of Bastille Day, the private dining room was decorated with miniature French flags.

Notable attendees included: Jean Shafiroff, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, NYS Assemblywoman Rebecca Seawright, Greg Kelly, Jason Binn, Susan Gutfreund, Sharon Bush, Jeanne Lawrence, Rodolfo Vera Calderon, Ariadna Vera Bustindui, Margo Langenberg, Lilah Ramzi, Ann Rapp, Maria Fishel, Larry Kaiser, Ray Bouderau, Lieba Nesis, Ernest Schmatolla, Marilyn Kirchner, Laurel Marcus, and Roy Kean.

Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff has served as a board member of the French Heritage Society for approximately eight years. A strong supporter of the nonprofit organization, Jean Shafiroff is dedicated to the preservation, restoration and promotion of French heritage in America and France.

The French national holiday, Bastille Day, commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison, marking the beginning of the French Revolution, which took place on July 14, 1789. The Bastille prison was a symbol of the absolute and arbitrary power of Louis XVI’s Regime. By capturing this symbol, the people signaled that the king’s authority should be limited by a separation of powers.
