Last night we were HONORED to be featured at the Westchester Italian Cultural Center Pre-Oscar Celebration where money was raised for their incredible children’s programs that really motivate and inspire kids! It was a raging success! Many, many thanks to the crew of Patrizia Calce, Maria Rose Pietrosanti, and Veronica Papa for their hard work and dedication.
We had a great book signing of KitchAnnette™ Red Carpet Menus which were part of the swag bags. The people were so nice and the book had such a positive reception. So happy!
Comedian Dan Nainan of “Last Comic Standing” fame gave his time and talents to do a fabulous set! We also had Barry the Magician entertaining through the evening! Thanks also to actor Warren Bub and playwright/actor Joe Gulla for adding panache to the night.
