ALPH LAUREN’S daughter Dylan Lauren opened up her fabulously expanded emporium, Dylan’s Candy Bar, for the second annual Kids in Candyland Party of the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in Manhattan.
Julie Dannenberg Regal and Alexandra Kramer chaired the event which attracted 300 guests of all ages, raising $80,000 to benefit the charity’s programs for children.
There was cookie decorating, story telling and, of course, candy for the kids, champagne Veuve Clicquot for the adults.
The committee included Cynthia Lufkin, Andrea Donahue, Eva Dillon, Irina Woelfle, Karen Groos, Aimee Nicklaus, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Erin Lazard, Ginny Bond Donahue Renee Rockefeller, Lauren Dupont, Aerin Lauder, Alexandra von Furstenberg, Kara Young and Sloan Lindemann Barnett.
Among those joining in the fun were Ozzie’s son Jack Osborne; Guy and Lucie Regal; Nathaniel and Max Kramer, who won the prize for guessing that there were 2,500 jellybeans in a jar; Fanya Cohen; JT Snyder with sons Maxwell and Jackson; Dan Lufkin and Schuyler Hazard; Kate McNara; Renée, Alexandra and Brooks Landegger; Ulrica and Nicholas Lanaro; Christine Schott with daughters Meredith and Whitney; Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos with Nicholas, Susan Moore, Tobias Bushman, Nancy Baker, Drew and Gillian Coyne, Blair Husain, Lynn Powell, Amy Gaiser, Dave Meyer, Robyn Fried, and Dr. Howard Sobel.
LHNH was represented by its president Diana Quasha; executive director Warren Scharf, with his daughter Briggin, one of the volunteers; Virginia Pitman, Joe Girven, Lynn Appelbaum and oodles of helpers everywhere.
Laughing Pizza singers Lisa Michaels and Billy Schlosser entertained downstairs and Sasha the face painter did his magic upstairs.
The goodie bags, which took the form of sturdy Gap backpacks, were jammed with gifts from the likes of Chopard, whose president Thierry Chaunu had hosted the event’s glamorous kick-off party a week earlier, Estée Lauder, Baroni, Princess Marie Chantal of Greece’s line of baby clothes, and many more.
