September is a few months away and we are getting geared up to have Evening Under the Stars II!
For all who were not there last year, you missed a great event. It seemed as if the stars aligned to make this night happen. The weather was perfect 75 degrees and since we were on the water the cool breeze was refreshing and just comfortable. The venue was perfect South Fin Grill’s “Deck Blu”
. The food and staff were both on point. The entertainment was just right. Russ Martone started the evening with some oldies and walked around the crowd singing and getting everyone involved. Drew from DJ Mega Mix then kicked it up a notch with the music playing various tracks from different genre and errors.
The committee was amazing after all the planning, everyone helped out to set up. My sister from Expression Gifts donated the decorations and helped us all put them together. Millie Batista from ICE tee’
s donated tee shirts for the guests. The food was great, we tried to keep it a clambake so most of the food was seafood. Mark Tranchina of South Fin hooked it up with food stations everywhere and towards the middle of the night Mike Regina from Mr. Chocolate Fountain prepared some great chocolate treats for all.
Industry magazine was their filming an episode of “on the town”
and the photo you see above is from their magazine (Industry) Nov/Dec issue.We had some great appearances from news anchor Alicia Viterelli and City Councilman Michael Grimm.
VIP Video illusions donated and helped coordinate the video and photos. Tom and Jennifer Falcone were very generous throughout this whole event and helped everything flow smoothly. Because of all our guest & sponsors and the generosity of some the evening was a success. We entertained more the 200 people and at the same time brought in over $10,000.00 for the American Cancer Society.
Cory Shifter of Casale Jewelers donated a set of his and her watchs. Rob Cosumano from L’
Furs donated a fur hat. Jeff DeFazio of Faztec Industries donated an IPad and Laura Kane donated a bracelet. John DeAmicis from Lighting Design Associates and Paul Dummitt from Eagle enclosures helped sponsor the event.
Overall it was a great event and we can’t wait to do it again, so if your interested in sponsoring 2011 Evening Under the Stars let me know.
