It was a night full of fun, holiday cheer, networking and games. Last night at Chateau Briand in Carle Place, TriCounty, IPALI & CPCU- LI held their Holiday Party. The night kicked off with welcome speeches by the Presidents from each association. After the speeches, a fabulous buffet dinner was served. After dinner, it was off to gambling. Unlike Vegas, each player was given $500 in “funny money” to gamble with. There were a variety of games from slot machines to card games and several fun prizes to choose from. This casino style event was not only about the networking and the games, but also about giving back to families in need. The event featured the charity Toys For Tots and was able to collect a tremendous amount of toys for the less fortunate which was collected by the three Marines in attendance.
As the night came to an end, the guests were treated to a wonderful buffet of deserts. Each guest was able to enjoy unlimited ice cream, chocolate fondue and cookies. Lou the photographer, captured every moment of the event, selected some of the guests to read holiday tongue twisters as he taped the goofy moments. The video is coming soon to the TriCounty YouTube channel.
The event was an absolute success and we owe it all to our President of C.H. Edwards, Inc., Steven Visco for taking the time and many months of planning for the event. We can’t wait to see what he has planned for next year!
