Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff

Celebrates Screening of “A Passion For Giving”


Powerhouse philanthropists Jean Shafiroff and Henry Buhl were part of a panel of speakers on hand to celebrate the screening of Robin Melanie Leacock’s documentary “A Passion For Giving” Saturday in Southampton. Jean Shafiroff spoke about the great benefits of giving, her life  and the importance of teaching future generations to become philanthropists. Animal activist and actress Missy Hargraves took the stage to introduce the PBS film in which she is featured along with Henry BuhlDonna Karan, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, Carolina Herrera, MTV founder John Sykes, and RUN DMC’s Darryl McDaniels with cameos by Dan Ackroyd, Richard Branson, Roger Waters, Fran Liebowitz, and President Bill Clinton. Candace Bushnell, along with “The Grandfather of Venture Capitalism, Alan Patricof, legendary concert promoter Ron Delsener, and G.E. Smith of SNL fame showed up.

Jean made an appearance at a private dinner hosted by Buhl attended by LuAnn de Lesseps, and Pamela O’Connor; then joined other movie-goers that dined at the all new Union Sushi & Steak a modern take on the steakhouses of old; who donated a portion of proceeds to The Southampton Animal Shelter. The sold-out socially-distanced event, touted by Vanity Fair as “honest, heartfelt, and inspirational,” launches a nation-wide tour of the film about philanthropy.
