Last night the National Meningtis Association held it's 3rd Annual--Give Kids a Shot Gala at the NYAC--New York Athletic Club. While the event without without a hitch, it was sadly not 'til the end of the evening that Social and Event Chair Sara Herbert-Galloway's Judith Leiber, (Austrian Crystal) Pear Bag, was clipped. Yes, STOLEN, someone walked right off with the bag.
Herbert-Galloway was seated with honoree Musician Chau-Giang Thi Nguygen, Director/Producer Brian Grazer, Designer Vera Wang, etc. After presenting Chau-Giang with her award, she left the table to say goodbye to Ms. Thi Nyguyen and Mr. Grazer. When she returned the waitstaff were busing the table and her bag was gone. She immediately notified security. While she looked for the bag, at the end of the evening with mostly NYAC staff and people cleaning up, her son Justin's brand new Blackberry was stolen!
Swiping a handbag from a woman dedicated to helping amputees and those who've lost their loved ones to meningitis is SHAMEFUL. Will the high-society thief, please show his or her face?
