A Great Night At The Brooks Brothers Holiday Party In New York City

December 14, 2016

Last night the fabulous store, Brooks Brothers in New York City, was the scene for a fabulous “Holiday  Party,” with some of the day’s proceeds going to benefit the great charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

There was so much to do, as I “buzzed” around the store, seeing its incredible merchandise, stopping for some incredible hot chocolate and taking a picture with a superb “Santa Claus” aka, Henry William Oelkers, actor and model.

All these years later, after also  enjoying time and conversation with Rob” at the “Santa Station,” where young and old posed with and sat on Santa’s lap (I could have, “Santa” said, but I sat on the arm of the chair), I learned “Santa” took the subway, in full regalia, but no reindeer in sight.

Additionally, Rob, (“Santa Station’) was not only friendly and truly interesting, but also very helpful and accommodating.

The wonderful actress and humanitarian, Marlo Thomas spoke, of course on behalf of St.Jude, a cause so close to her family, inspired by her mom and dad, the latter being the legendary entertainer, Danny Thomas.

It was at least the second straight year the Brooks Brothers crowd was treated to Wynton Marsalis and orchestra really entertaining, with great music.

As stated, I buzzed, renewing old acquaintances, including with those who supported Donald Trump. One such person,  a beautiful, actual delegate said “I could have told you he (Mr. Trump) would win.”  I wish she had done so earlier, as even a great night at Brooks Brothers, can not top a 5 to 1 payout.

However, it was a great night and I am grateful to have been there.



Thinking of Santa and the great gift, then a bicycle, now a realization that giving to others is a great gift to one self.
