When we purchased Simon’s Fund Sex and the City II package offered at Simon’s Day, we were confident of two things. First, the money was going to an amazing cause, one that is dear to our hearts, and will be spent to help safeguard the lives of children in our region. Second, we will have a great time celebrating Jill’s special birthday together. What we were not prepared for was what an unbelievable experience we were about to have!
After checking in to the Ritz Carlton on Central Park South for two nights to a club room overlooking the park, we were chauffeured by the hotel to the premiere. We were ecstatic to find that our seats were up front, at the center of all the excitement. We were surrounded by A-list celebrities (Donald and Melania Trump, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, and Gayle King to name a few), with everyone decked out for New York City’s premiere of the year!
After the movie was introduced by its producers and by Sarah Jessica Parker, we were shuttled in movie themed double-decker bus to the after-party. The party was magnificent, an outdoor Moroccan themed party, with delicious food, and, of course, the best Cosmopolitans we have ever tasted. We were right in the center of all of the excitement, with opportunities to speak at length to many celebrities. We took every opportunity to discuss Simon’s Fund and felt extremely proud to promote the cause. The experience far exceeded both of our expectations. The entire evening was unforgettable and only outshined by the knowledge that our enjoyment helped to support a wonderful, amazing cause.
