YLAN LAUREN turned over her confectionary gold mine, Dylan’s Candy Bar, at Third Avenue and 60th Street on the East Side, to the yummy mummies of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House for their third annual Kids in Candyland party, under the leadership of Julie Dannenberg and Alex Kramer.
Jessica Seinfeld, Brooks and Reneé Landegger, Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, Eva, Charlie and Lily Dillon, Pamela Gross, Whitney and Jamie Fairchild, Irina Woelfle, Cynthia and Dan Lufkin with daughter Schuyler, Andrea and Erin Donahue, Nathaniel Kramer with kids Libby and Xander and their grandmother Terry Allen Kramer, Dana Hammond Stubgen; Blakely, Wade and Eliza Griggs; Alexandra, and Valesca Guerrand-Hermes were among the 350 guests that came out to help The House raise $75,000 to benefit their children’s programs, which are so vital to Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
A sweet time was had by all. There was champagne Veuve Clicquot for the adults and cookie decorating, story telling, mini hamburgers, sandwiches and, of course, candy, candy and more candy for the kids.
Helping out or showing up for the fun were Alexandra von Furstenberg, Mireya, Joseph and Sophia D’Angelo, Renée Rockefeller, Jennifer, Alix and Lowell Creel, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Anne and Harrison Grauso with Wick Waller, Sloan Lindemann Barnett, Guy and Lucie Regal, Erin and Chloe Lazard, Lauren Dupont, Cricket, Manzi, and India Burns, Caroline LoFaro, and Lillian von Stauffenberg.
The Neighborhood House was represented by executive director Warren Scharf with his daughter Briggin and friend Kate McNamara; Lucia DeRespinis with her mother Lucia and daughter Milena; Virginia Pitman; Lynn Applebaum, Lauren Malang, and oodles of helpers everywhere.
