Vice-Chairs: Joycelyn Engle and Chih-Chin Sun


On June 19, 2013 the stars collided for an evening of red carpet glamour, mouth-watering cuisine and signature cocktails, auction, raffles, surprises, and more at The Inaugural St. Jude Spring Social to support the extraordinary mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to find cures for pediatric cancers and other devastating illnesses.  

Celebrity and Host Committee members included: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Billy Bob Thornton, Jonathan Jackson, Alyssa Milano, Steven Bauer (Scarface, "Breaking Bad", "Ray Donovan"), Julianne Michelle ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps", "Apartment 1303", US theatres July 25, "Awakened" US theatrical 2013), Marsha Thomason ("White Collar"), Willie Garson ("White Collar"), Steve Guttenberg, Elizabeth Rohm ("The Client List"), Danny Aiello, Elaine Hendrix (Parent Trap), Alex McCord ("Housewives of New York"), Sean Stone, Holly Taylor ("The Americans")  Amy Fine Collins, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin, Cole Rumbough, Liam McMullan, Megan Zilis, Lauren Lawrence, Stefan Lumiere, Emily Hunt, Ashley Passik, and China Tian. 

Susan Misner of (“The Americans”) and Lou Martini Jr (“The Sopranos”) also walked the red carpet to lend their support to this amazing cause.

DJ Miles Robbins enchanted the crowd with his eclectic tunes while guests were served savory hors d'oeuvres from NOIR and delectable desserts from Baked by Melissa, Ivy Bakery, Alexandria, Royce’ Chocolate, Pasticceria Rocco, DeRobertis Café, Bridor de France, and more.

Sebastian Clarke, Senior Vice President of Doyle New York, exhorted the energetic crowd to raise their pallets with an open heart, helping to raise thousands of dollars as guest auctioneer. Some of the most coveted auction and raffle items included a 5 night stay at the luxurious Sloane Club in

in London, dinner for two at Le Cirque, a 3 month pass at Equinox, a four hour consultation with world renowned Feng Shui Master Pun-Yin, a five day experience with film director, casting director, and producer Valerie McCaffrey, a holistic personal one-on-one consultation with Dr. Julissa, an analytical dream session with NY Daily News dreams columnist, best-selling author and host of Biography channel’s TV show “Celebrity Nightmares Decoded”, Lauren Lawrence, a Maggie Norris Couture Bespoke T-Shirt, and more!

The evening’s festivities were brought to a close with Tamara Raytan singing “The Greatest Love of All”.

Chair, Julianne Michelle, stated “I hope tonight marks the beginning of a new tradition and that we will see all of you again next year.”

Everyone left with a gift bag filled to the brim with goodies whose aggregate monetary value exceeded that of an individual ticket. Each bag included a private training session with Equinox Trainer Michael Rich, a Live Worldly Brazilian luck bracelet, a Flygrip mobile phone accessory, a Larabar, Yves Delorme soap, a $50 gift card from The Real Real, a box of Royce’ Chocolates, and a $20 Über gift card. VIP bags included a little something extra with a 0039 Italy votive candle and Pin Ups hair accessories.

Other sponsors and donors included Emma NYC, Supernova Media, Inc, Prohibition Distillery, Ole Imports, Tuthilltown Spirits, Organic Avenue, The Sloane Club, No. 8, Open Center, Lady M, Betteridge, Tracy Martyn Beauty, Photofiddle, Taza Chocolate, Lily Pulitzer, and Cacao Prieto.

All ticket proceeds and donations benefited St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a remarkable institution founded by Danny Thomas, to treat and prevent devastating pediatric diseases. Most extraordinary is that no child is turned away because of race, religion, or inability to pay. Public donations and fundraising events are integral to sustaining this organization with operating costs of approx. $1.8M each day. Since it's opening in 1962, St. Jude's revolutionary treatments have helped increase survival rates of certain childhood cancers from less than 20% to over 80%.
