The 2013 Long Island Hospitality Ball at Crest Hollow was a spectacular event with great food, great drinks, and was very well-attended! Some of the delicious restaurants featured at the gala included Mio Posto, Nisen, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Rare650 and many, many more. Guests danced to great music at the VIP party, where an awesome disco band stole the show! An array of beautiful fireworks were set off to add to the beautiful atmosphere at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Upon entering the event, guests were lined up down the street in their cars, and even parked all the way up the block to make sure they made it in to this wonderful evening. Unfortunately, the parking situation was not as great as the food and music, but everyone made the most of it! Of course, it can’t be a fabulous evening without some fabulous fashion, so we made sure to capture the best dressed guests of the night and featured them here for you to see — enjoy!

New Year’s Eve Returns in June to Benefit the American Cancer Society at the Long Island Hospitality Ball
The 2013 Long Island Hospitality Ball benefiting the American Cancer Society will be held on Monday, June 3 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Considered the New Year’s Eve for Long Island restaurant and nightlife employees, more than 2,500 guests are expected to strut their stuff and enjoy the evening. Those in the industry see the fashion and style of diners and party-goers every day and this is one of the few nights they get to enjoy themselves while dressing to impress! Last year’s attire ranged from elegant ball gowns to bright-colored mini dresses to high-end printed two-piece ensembles.
Entertainment highlights the evening with featured acts from well-known DJs to live bands including Big Shot with guest appearances by members of the Billy Joel Band. Restaurants and catering entities dish out signature summer specialties such as Besito guacamole and Sage Bistro Moderne salmon tartare. Featured nightclubs and bars as well as wine and spirit sponsors complete the event with cocktails. Tickets are $100 per person (or $150 at the door) and may be purchased at http://bit.ly/2013LIHBtickets
The night sizzled as guests enjoyed a lavish buffet dinner and colorful cocktails. The room was filled with exquisitely designed animal-themed decor, from ice sculptures to creatively “carved” dogs on the serving stations. Très magnifique!! There was a huge array of beautifully wrapped raffle baskets, with all ticket sales going to benefit animals in need on Long Island.
The Pet Peeves’ 10th Anniversary Celebration took place on Tuesday, March 20, at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Janine Dion’s production was utterly delightful: chicly decorated, scores of stylish Long Islanders, an abundantly friendly and warm vibe, and catered with extensive choices of fine food. Scores of reasons why it is worth the time, effort and funds to make sure you put this on your calendar for next year!!
Enjoy these images of just some of the beautifully dressed (and fun!) attendees, while everyone there enjoyed the colorful lounge theme, decadent food, extensive bar with NO lines and outrageous display of raffle baskets.
Great evening out, where animals in need were supported generously on Long Island. Pet Peeves, Inc. is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization, is completely volunteer-driven. They have a hands-on board, wonderful volunteers and no paid staff members. The proceeds of ALL efforts go to the animals!
