The exclusive, invitation-only brunch took place at the Bridgehampton estate of Kenneth and Maria Fishel and benefited The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation which is dedicated to finding cures for cancer.
The RAND Luxury brunch showcased the latest models from Ferrari and Maserati of Long Island which included the 2018 Ferrari Portofino and the 2018 Maserati Quattroporte GranLusso. Guests had the opportunity to test drive the all-new 2018 models. The Icon A5 light sport aircraft was among the endless rows of luxury cars on display which provided guests the perfect photo opportunities during the brunch.
Guests also browsed exclusive luxury brands and experiences including home electronics & décor, private aviation, tourism opportunities to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, fashion and more.
Throughout the course of the event, guests had the opportunity to vote for their favorite car model to receive this year’s Best in Show People’s Choice Award. The winners from each participating brand were the custom painted 2016 Maserati Grand Turismo MC owned by Pranay Parmar and the 2015 Ferrari 458 owned by Jeffrey Supinsky.
