Two weeks ago Lilly Pulitzer and the Associates Committee of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, along with Chambord French Liqueur welcomed 270 guests for a Party in the Park at Bryant Park Grill, to benefit Lenox Hill Neighborhood House.
The Pink Lilly and Chambord French Liqueur specialty drinks were served along with cocktails on the terrace with the chairwomen wearing Lilly Pulitzer dresses. Dinner was then served on colorful Lilly Pulitzer tablecloths. The evening was very successful: they raised $125,000 for Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, the oldest and largest social and educational services organization on the Upper East Side.
Chairmen were: Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Allen, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Aston, Mr. and Mrs. George Brokaw, Mr. Walter Deane, Mr. and Mrs. George S. Perry, Mr. and Mrs. Ian K.W. Snow, Mrs. Kristina Stewart Ward.
