Cynthia, philanthropist and wife of financier Dan Lufkin, hosted an intimate cocktail party in their Central Park
West home to kick-off the American Cancer Society's 2008 Award Luncheon on February 26th at the Plaza.
Cynthia will be honored with "Mother of The Year" for her dedication and commitment to the American Cancer
Society. The location could not be more appropriate as the home they now live in was built in 1887 as the New
York Cancer Hospital and a portion of their home, where the party took place, in the old chapel.
The American Cancer Society President Linda Feldman made the toast on the cascading spiral staircase overlooking
the magnificent chapel turned living room. She also thanked all the co-chairs, many of Cynthia's closest
Notable guests included Howard Stern, Beth Ostosky, Diana and Richard Feldman, Bill Cunningham, Grace
Hightower, Julie Dannenberg, Anne Keating, Jamee and Peter Gregory, Wendy Carduner, David Patrick
Columbia, Dominique Browning, Somers farkas, Muffie Potter Aston, Jacqueline Togut, Dayle Haddon, Emily
and Leslie Keno, Maria Cuomo, Sharon bush and Chris Meigher
