Epstein worth more than $600 million, according to an estate inventory ongoing in a U.S. Virgin Islands probate court.
A U.S. Virgin Islands court has managed to ferret out something for which U.S. investigators are still digging.
Just how rich was Jeffrey Epstein?
So far, more than $600 million, according to an estate inventory ongoing in a Virgin Islands probate court.
The total includes 15 companies valued at $426 million; his “big” and “little” U.S. Virgin Islands worth $86 million; and his homes in Palm Beach, New York, New Mexico and Paris.
Yet to be appraised: His jewelry and watches, furniture, other personal effects, and his dreadful art collection (really, Elvis on velvet would have been a better investment).
Junior achievements: In a town where party-going is an art, you’d think that the younger set would be apprentices.
Take the Young Friends of the Palm Beach Symphony, for example. In just a few years, the junior group has turned the subdued cocktail party into a full-out rollick.
More than 100 of ’em turned out at Hindman Auctioneers for a reception to kick off the annual gala, Fantasia.
In addition to custom cocktails and dinner by the bite, there was a private viewing of offerings from upcoming auctions and music by the symphony’s Brandon Norris, who played the harpsichord.
Yes, the harpsichord. A millennial. Really, how do you lug that thing to a gig on Clematis Street?
There: Young Friends executive committee chairman J. Roby Penn IV and his wife, Xiomi; gala honorary chairs Jessica and Trent Swift; gala chairs Robert and Kate Waterhouse; vice chairs Taniel and Arsine Koushakjian; Tyler Moynihan, Theresa Gaugler, Stephanie and Regine Branscomb, Kate Stamm, Randee Bank, Elizabeth and Homer Marshman, Elena Corsano, Matthew McGeever, Michelle James, Susan Dyer, Thomas and Ruth Mansmith, Jennifer Nawrocki, Robin Wilder, and a bunch more who know that an adagio isn’t the latest thing to roll off a Detroit assembly line.
New York state of mind: The Hon. Nancy Brinker, former U.S. ambassador to Hungary, was chairwoman — along with Susan Gutfreund and Sylvia Hemingway — of a dinner to benefit the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
The dinner followed the orchestra’s widely acclaimed concert in New York, led by maestro Ivan Fisher.
There, in addition to Fisher, were Steven Van Zandt, Ellen Burstyn, Noreen and Ken Buckfire, Joan Hardy Clark, Andre Fratto, Joanna Fisher, Colin Fowler, Mark Morris, Barbara and Donald Tober — the latter three were honored as Living Landmarks last year — Ambassador Donald Blinken, Beth Jacobs, Heidi Lee Komaromi, Barbara Rogoff, David M. Tobey, Peter Thomas Roth, Margo Langenberg, Jean Shafiroff, and lots more cultured types.
