An Intimate Evening Under the Stars With Michael Bolton
 The Michael Bolton Charities fundraising event, “An Evening Under the Stars”, took place at a private estate in Sagaponack on Saturday, August 19th beginning at 6pm. Now in its 24th year, The Michael Bolton Charities has been a consistent advocate and supporter of initiatives and organizations committed to responding to the needs of children and women at risk from domestic violence, physical and mental abuse, poverty, homelessness and human trafficking. Over 200 guests to came together for a charitable evening of dinner, drinks, and a private performance by Michael Bolton himself, all in honor of women and children as victims of domestic violence everywhere. The event was presented by Lawrence Scott Events. Founder and Creative Director, Lawrence Scott Gottesman, created a one-of-a-kind celebration for such a meaningful cause.
The hosts for the evening were Kimberly Guifoyle and Chris Wragge. Honorees included Susan Shin, Founder of Shin Advisors, who was recognized for her philanthropic work towards ending living with domestic violence. Every detail was executed brilliantly and real captured your attention. The tent, chandeliers, and table settings were exquisite. I was blown away by the culinary presentation and passed hor d’oeuvres, which included Filet Mignon ‘cigars’, Chicken Satay, and spring rolls. Just behind the tent was an enormous fresh fruit, bread, and cheese display that really captured your attention. It was almost too perfect to touch and eat from. I have never seen anything like it.

On Saturday, August 5th, Christy Doramus of Crowns by Christy hosted a summer brunch in partnership with Nine West at a private residence in Sagaponack, NY. In support of Nine West’s new #StandOut campaign, the event focused on highlighting the brand’s new shoe collection inspired by strength, power and beauty of women across the world.

During the event, guests were invited to try on their favorite Nine West designs and complete their looks from “head to toe” with a flower crown. A custom “shoefie” station designed by Christy Doramus allowed attendees to easily take photos of their favorite shoe styles and creatively showcase what it means to #StandOut.

RAND Luxury Private Charity Brunch with Aston Martin 2017

On Saturday, July 22nd from 11am-3pm, RAND Luxury hosted a private charity brunch with Aston Martin at an estate for sale in Sagaponack. Guests were able to see and learn more about the DB11 along with the other latest models from Aston Martin while sipping signature spirits, enjoying brunch, and discovering a showcase of luxury brands featuring unique timepieces, sporting equipment, private aviation, fashion, electronics, and more.

I love attending the RAND luxury brunches, especially since my daughter is able to join us. She loves to look at the high-end vehicles and be outside with us enjoying the day. We were lucky that it was not too hot that day. The event was held mostly outside, with Godiva Chocolatier providing samples and information to guests. We loved their individually wrapped mint chocolate and crème brûlée truffles.

Drink It Tuesday: Wölffer Estate Vineyard Cider

I was introduced to Wölffer Estate’s Dry Rosé and Dry White Cider this past winter. My husband was so fond of how refreshing and citrusy the ciders tasted, it took me until now to share these exceptional ciders with you! Perfect for summer, Wölffer’s ciders will enhance any backyard BBQ, poolside lunch, or sunset soiree. I digress, why did it take this long? We received a case of cider compliments of Wölffer, but before I could tell my husband and his friends not to touch it, the cider was gone with the wind! Everyone loved it so much, they went out a week later and bought more, then poof! It was gone again. We literally purchased the cider eight times before I could finally snatch up two packages and set them aside for photos (not an easy task).

Their cider was a hit with everyone. First the color and presentation of each package drew us in: it is so cheerful and the labeling reminds me of the Spanish Caribbean: romantic and full of life.
