Senate candidate Chele Farley hits Manhattan fundraising circuit

7


Susan Gutfreund, a lifelong liberal, is co-hosting her first political fundraiser — for a Republican.

Gutfreund, the widow of Wall Street legend John Gutfreund, and Ava Roosevelt, whose family has been associated with the Democratic Party since the days of her husband’s grandfather, FDR, are supporting Chele Farley in her bid to unseat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

The reception on Monday is at Gutfreund’s Fifth Avenue apartment, which will go back on the market for $68 million next week. Mick Jagger scoped out the apartment Thursday night, where he met up with his baby-mama, ballet dancer Melanie Hamrick. The party was to launch “Sleeping Beauty Dreams,” the latest project of the great Russian ballerina, Diana Vishneva, who is also a new mother.

On Wednesday, Jean and Martin Shafiroff are throwing a Farley fund-raiser in their Park Avenue pad. On Sept. 26, Charlotte and hedge funder Peter Schoenfeld are hosting in their Midtown abode.

“Friendship trumps party affiliation,” one Upper East Sider said.

That’s not news to Chele, whose lawyer husband Richard Farley is a Democrat.
