The crowd included young professionals and aspiring philanthropists like Melissa Berkelhammer, Brooke Laing, Antonella Lemos, Cole Rumbough, and Liz Shafiroff. They all support the New York City Mission Society’s goal to improve the lives of children, youth, and families in the city’s most underserved communities. Deeply devoted to the cause, Jean Shafiroff will serve as the honoree for their upcoming benefit gala on Wednesday, March 12, 2013.

With the toy drive event, this year sponsored in part by MarieBelle New York, Baked by Melissa, Insomnia Cookies, Bonito Mezcal, and Früzen Ice, guests had the opportunity to support the toy drive while holiday shopping, as 20-percent of each purchase made was donated to New York City Mission Society.

Guests dressed in festive seasonal attire enjoyed holiday cocktails, cookies, chocolate, and cupcakes, while shopping and playing with the many interactive toys of pilotage, ranging from electronic helicopters, airplanes, and cars.

The NYC Mission Society will be accepting donations throughout the entire holiday season, and can be made online at:
