Sean Hepburn Ferrer, son of the late Audrey Hepburn, was at the UNICEF Women’s Luncheon, held Tuesday at Hampshire House. (The actress was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1987 and her son now chairs the US Fund for UNICEF’s Audrey Hepburn Society.) “Our mother believed in education above all,” said Hepburn Ferrer, who works in the movie business. “New England is the cradle of the America civilization, and the home to the greatest education on the planet, so it seems like a natural thought that we focus on that. It’s also the only long-term solution to getting UNICEF to not be the only fireman of the world but also to bring and deliver an education for all children.”
