Ann Liguori Foundation Dinner Dance:
 A Sold Out Success



Under gorgeous skies, sports legends, TV & Radio personalities and the East End charity set turned out in droves for the Ann Liguori Foundation Annual  Outback Steakhouse Dinner Dance at Duck Walk Vineyards in Water Mill hosted by popular sports radio & television personality Ann Liguori on Friday, July 15. The dinner came hot on the heels of her sold out Ann Liguori Foundation Charity Golf Classic, at Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton. Proceeds from both events benefit the American Cancer Society and Healthy Children, Healthy Futures, teaching young people about good nutrition and fitness for over-all good health benefits.

The evening began with cocktails overlooking the beautiful vineyards with a bird’s eye view of the new Parrish Art Museum. Outback Steakhouse, one of the evening’s sponsors, offered specialty drinks including Black Cherry Peach Mojito, New South Wales Sangria and a brand new Naturally Skinny Margarita.

The Hampton’s chic dinner dance featured delicious appetizers and a complete buffet dinner courtesy of Outback Steakhouse. Several of their delectable appetizers include Seared Ahi Tuna, canapés of Goat Cheese with multi colored peppers and homemade Spinach Dip, followed by an extravagant buffet dinner featuring their signature sirloin steaks, Norwegian salmon, grilled chicken, and a variety of freshly made side dishes.   Dessert offerings included classic cheese cake and carrot cake. ‘We at Outback Steakhouse love working with the Ann Liguori Foundation and everything Ann and her Foundation stand for,” says Jennifer Szewc, Joint Venture Partner, Outback Steakhouse New York. “Each year, Outbackers are so excited to be a part of Ann’s dinner dance in The Hamptons. It’s great fun and for a wonderful cause!”

From the outset the party was jumping with live entertainment provided by award winning singer- songwriter Dillon Dixon who played a combination of R&B, country and dance music. His songs have been recorded by George Jones, Restless Heart, Ronnie Milsap, Neal McCoy, Josh Gracin, and Rodney Atkins. His music has also been featured in film, including “Terminator 3,” “Live Free or Die Hard,” “The Crow 3,” and Wes Craven’s “Scream,” “Cursed,” and “Mimic.”  Dillon recently signed with Universal London.

The event was blessed with an extremely hard working committee who packed the house, filled the raffle tables with elegant gifts and bid heavily on the live auction items. Dinner Chairperson was Patricia Vallary and the committee included Barbara Anelle, Cliff Barthman, Edd Dilworth, Jan & Rich Grim, Sharon Bush, B J Carter. Carmine Calabro, Evelyn DeVito, Len Gallo, Liz Giordano, Daniel Liguori, Karen Loeffler, Lynda Packard, Jeffrey Ponzo, Frank & Rosemarie Pinto, Jean Skidgel, Mary Skillern, Michele Steudte, Diane Schwimmer, Scott Vallary, Jerry Williams, Ray & Joanne Zarras.

The live auction featured such wonderful experiences as opportunities to play at Shinnecock, Maidstone and Sebonack along with items such as dinner for four at Rao’s, jewelry, a silent auction with a variety of sports and entertainment memorabilia and an international raffle with all kinds of goodies.
