PHOTOS: Toys for Tots Party in Chestnut Hill

Plus: The event's hosts have big plans for a new Center City boutique hotel.

Last Sunday, I attended a party to benefit Toys for Tots hosted by Vittoria and Ken Schultz at their gorgeous Chestnut Hill home High Hollow. High Hollow was designed by George Howe, who also did the iconic PSFS building. The Schultzes are in the middle of a major renovation of the 13,000-square-foot estate once occupied by Sam and Goldie Paley—while also working on their Center City boutique hotel “The Dwight D,” located in the old Giovanni & Pileggi building at 256 South 16th Street.

The toys collected at the event were headed to the north Philadelphia medical clinic where Erin Pusz works. The entertainment for the event was provided by CTO Artists’ Carmen Tomassetti, who led the 50-plus guests on a holiday sing-along.

Kinslero just appeared on the Lifetime Network’s Mom’s Cooking, with her daughter Lauren, making their favorite dish together, manicotti.
