Philanthropist and author Jean Shafiroff hosted a Bastille Day Luncheon for close friends on Thursday, July 14th, 2016 at Le Cirque Restaurant in New York to honor the French national holiday, Bastille Day. This holiday celebrates the unity of the French people after the Storming of the Bastille prison in Paris, France in 1789.

Jean Shafiroff, a board member of the French Heritage Society in New York City, spoke passionately against the Paris terror attacks that occurred on November 13, 2015. Moments after her luncheon, there would be another terrorist attack this time in Nice, France. On an annual day of celebration, when French people should feel proud and unified, fear rippled through the country after the tragedy.

Last year, on Sunday, November 15, 2015, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney and Jean Shafiroff co-hosted a candle light vigil to a packed room of supporters. French-Americans living in New York City commemorated the victims who lost their lives after a terrorist attack in Paris in November of 2015.

Notable attendees included: Jean Shafiroff, Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, Best-selling authors Michael Gross and Nina Burleigh, Sharon Bush, CeCe Black, International Decorator Geoffrey Bradfield, Ann Rapp, Roy Kean, Catherine Sabino, Janna Bullock, Chiu-Ti Jansen, Randi Schatz, Victor De Souza, Lee Fryd, Lady Lillian Cavendish, Patricia Shia, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Margot Langenberg, Kevin Roche.
