It was a warm, relaxed and fun evening at the Huntington Foundation Gala on March 5th. The Mansion at Oyster Bay was packed with guests there to celebrate with honorees Allison Von Vange from Woodhull Intermediate and Mary Alice and Susannah Meinersman from Bon Bons Chocolatier. The attendees arrived to a serenade of showtunes by Huntington’s own Chamber Choir. Tables of raffle prizes, a dozen silent auctions, and a Grand Prize of Pave Diamond Hoops from Libutti Jewelers enticed the crowd to take a chance on a prize during the cocktail hour. Once seated, the crowd heard about our gracious honorees and their dedication to and impact on our community and schools, while a photo slideshow rolled in the background. After a plated first course, district and community guests enjoyed a large selection of dining choices at four different gourmet food stations, then filled the dancefloor partying to a great selection of music. A fun photo booth, a to-go snack station, and a parting gift from Bon Bons put the finishing touches on a great night. The Foundation would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all who attended, our sponsors, donors and of course our Youth Board for all your support. We look forward to putting the Gala profits toward some amazing grants this spring!
