It was another fabulous night at our St.
Patrick's Day celebration which was blessed again with
dry weather even though it had been snowing and raining
for several weeks. Our night of celebration always seems
to end up dry and calm. Our prayers are always
answered with good weather, and so many of our treasured
friends came to celebrate with us. But rain or shine,
we can still hold an event, because this is after all
“New York". New
Yorkers and the people around the tri-state are very
resilient people, so we don't get scared easily from
downpours of rain and sleet of snow or major stormy
That is why we all love New York. People
came. We had a lot of regular guests and a lot of new
guests and members and friends of Elite Professional
Networking Group (EPNG) Black Tie International
Magazine, and our regular guests brought their friends
to celebrate our
monthly event with us.
Our event line-up began with
my long-time friend the German Baroness Marion Von
Buchard who just came back from her skiing trip from the
Swiss Alps, and the lovely Sabina Klimek the Trade
Commissioner of Poland, Wojtek Trocewicz of the Polish
Consulate, the charming Ewa Zadworna, Project Manager
for the American Center of Polish Culture. This time my
long time German friends in the hospitality and
restaurant business who always support my charity events
attended, a group of
and also with Egon Gronau
Director of Operations of the Highlawn Pavillion, The
Manor, Rams Head Inn and Pleasantdale Chateau, and Chef
Frederic, Chef Uber and Businessman Horst Oertel.
And our own Irish Gentlemen Gerard
McKeon the Publisher of Black Tie International Magazine
who wore a greenish suite with green tie and
leprechaun doll in his pocket to
celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Author/Executive
Producer Karynne Summars originally from Germany. Our
good friend Orly Amor of Global Mentoring Center who
brought many of her friends, and also Richard
Alan Owner and Partner of Richard Alan Management who

all our guests brought their delightful friends and
associates. So despite the cold weather outside and the
first day of the week, a Monday, we all had a marvelous
time - it is always such fun. So we thank all our
friends for coming and bringing all their friends. And
