Each brand had a unique exhibit for guests to experience. Besides the open bar that used exclusively high-end liquors, Brandon Everett, creator of Cocktail Drops, provided hand-crafted Patron cocktails that were formed into solid spheres and served in cones. The drops had a smooth, custard-like consistency of which melted in your mouth immediately. Between enjoying those signature cocktails and indulging in fine cuisine, guests were able to take leisure in cleansing their palate with premium cigars. It was truly an experience that could not be matched within the hustle of New York City.
The entire afternoon exuded extravagance, but it wouldn’t have been complete without a fundraiser. The day came to a close with a silent auction. A night with the Giant legend Eli Manning, an in home dinner for 10 by the Chef of Rao’s, and a Villa Lusso getaway to Peruga were just a few of the high-class experiences of up for grabs.
