Wine flowed freely Friday at the Garden City Hotel’s Patio Bar as the venue hosted a Rosé Soiree to benefit the nonprofit Long Island’s Alzheimer’s Foundation.
Estandon and VieVite Rosé, two Rosé makers from France, battled it out to be crowned the fan favorite while supporting the noble cause.
“I’m so honored to be here for the Rosé Soiree that’s honoring and raising awareness for the Long Island Alzheimer’s foundation, which I’m really passionate about,” said Chanel Omari, 106.1 BLI radio host and former reality star on Bravo’s Princesses of Long Island. “The most upsetting thing about this disease is that there’s no cure and today at the Garden City Hotel pink event, we are raising money for an amazing cause and raising awareness, which is key to finding the cure and putting an end to this awful disease.”
VieVite offered their signature 2015 Rosé for guests to sample, while Estandon showcased their 2016 Rosé. Beyond the trendy, The Patio Bar served up small plates, The Red Door Salon & Spa offered free hand massages and oxygen blow outs, and Dolce and Gelato Catering offered free samples for dessert.
The Garden City Hotel is a part of the Long Island Elite, an organization dedicated to fostering business development and their leaders on Long Island. This year, the organization selected LIAF as its 2017 charity partner of the year and hosted events throughout the year, such as the Rosé Soiree, to raise money for the charity in efforts to help those with Alzheimer’s from the earliest to latest stages of the disease.
Long Island Elite’s 15th annual Charity Masquerade, their main annual nonprofit fundraiser, is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 26 at Oheka Castle in Huntington.
