Bright Lights Foundation Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day at
“The Event 2011”

 St. Patrick’s day was indeed quite The Event for guests who attended the charity benefit located in the heart of bustling Times Square at Pompeii The Exhibit. Bright Lights Foundation provides free and discounted tickets to New York metro area school children to attend the Discovery Times Square museum. This fall Discovery Times Square will be featuring the Dead Sea Scrolls. Special guest Dave Checketts, Chairman of Sports Capital Partners, helped to kick off the evening with an inspiring message that reflected upon courage and accomplishment.

 Recording artist and Broadway actor Deborah Cox delivered an electrifying headline performance,
 and closed out with her 90’s top dance hit
Nobody’s Supposed to be Here,

which exhilarated the audience.
“Simply spectacular”, said Gary Silverhardt,
CEO of Equilease Financial Services.

 The Event 2011 was sponsored by the Ritz-Carlton Destinations Club whose own Dave Chapman was in attendance to provide the top prize for guests who competed in the Mohegan Sun blackjack and craps tournament that took place on various floors of the three level venue.  A special Italian espresso bar and John Hardy LTD Edition espresso maker were provided by De’Longhi that helped keep guests alert late into the evening. “Tonight was absolutely fabulous”, said Anthony Altamura, a Partner at Hahn & Hessen, LLP. Alitalia Airways will be sending one lucky player and a few friends to Italy with free tickets. One winner will remain closer to home but will be airborne nonetheless aboard a private helicopter tour of NYC provided by Blue Star Jets.

 The Event 2011 guests were able to enjoy tours of Pompeii The Exhibit while feasting on sumptuous creations from Chef Chavez of the midtown Italian eatery Bice. Continuing on the Italian theme was beer sponsored by Peroni. Emporers vodka also whipped up special libations for guests. Gary Berger and his colleague Jeff Kollin from the accounting firm Rothstein Kass may have summarized the evening best, “Great fun, food, friends and first class entertainment. It all added up to a wonderful evening.”
