Notables Family Party: How the Grinch Stole Christmas

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Notables and their families recently attended a special party on December 11 following a Carnegie Hall Family Concert featuring Brian Stokes Mitchell and The New York Pops titled How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Our smallest Notables decorated cookies, created snowflake crafts, and mingled with Cindy Lou-Who, the Grinch, and Santa himself.

Special thanks to Random House Children’s Books for generously underwriting the Notables Family Party. Many thanks also to MoonSoup: Early Childhood Studio & Birthday Party Center for providing crafts, and Cheryl’s Cookies for providing cookies. Thanks to all who donated items for the gift bags: Apple & Eve, CrewCuts, Crumbs, Intermix, Kiss My Face, O.N.E. Coconut Water, Ralph Lauren, Smarty Pants Vitamins, Sony Music’s Ariama.com, Tupperware, and Warner Music Group.

We would also like to thank Notables Steering Committee members Caroline Rocco Dennis, Christin Barringer Rueger, and Mary Wible Vertin for arranging the special event.
