2nd Annual Long Island Hospitality Ball – Society-In-Focus to Photograph and DONATE…keep reading for details!

On Monday, June 18, 2012, we will be photographing the Long Island Hospitality Ball at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury, NY.  In addition to donating our time to photograph this event, WE WILL ALSO BE DONATING 25% OF ALL PRINT AND DOWNLOAD SALES FROM THIS EVENT to the American Cancer Society!

The Long Island Hospitality Ball is a night of sensory delights – light, sound, food and drink – to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. It is presented by hospitality headliners from across the region including top restaurants, wine and spirit brands, nightclubs and entertainers as well as hotels and catering halls.  It was founded in 2011 by Keith Hart, a hospitality industry mainstay and cancer survivor, whose private battle with thyroid cancer, now in remission, inspired him to go public with his mission, and rally the industry to join the fight against cancer through an extraordinary evening of dining, dancing and donating.

Newsday’s Jim Bernstein and Erica Marcus called the 2011 inaugural event “one of the largest fundraising events in years to raise money to battle cancer” and “a food-industry showcase.” The night of sensory delights – light, sound, food and drink – raised more than $170,000, was enjoyed by 1500 guests, and made possible by more than 150 industry sponsors.

In the spirit of generosity, three industry peers will be honored in 2012 for their achievements:

  • Anthony “Tony” Greco, a 40-year hospitality industry veteran and owner of York Grill in Manhattan who is best known for directing operations of premier nightspots in New York City and Long Island including Uncle Sam’s and “Malibu” Beach Club. He is also a founding member of the Long Island Hospitality Ball’s 1980s forerunner, the Bartenders’ Ball, serving for several years as chairman.
  • Steve Haweeli, founder and president of WordHampton Public Relations, the region’s number one hospitality PR firm, in addition to being known for strategic counseling, media expertise and as an early adopter of social media to build brand reputations, is responsible for the creation of Long Island Restaurant Week, Hamptons Restaurant Week and Long Island Restaurant News.

The Long Island Hospitality Ball, reflecting the breadth and depth of the region’s now mature hospitality business, was modeled on the Bartenders’ Ball, an annual fundraiser, originating in 1978, that spread to Long Island and other major markets from Washington D.C., to aid local charities and honor industry leaders.

Tickets are $100 per person and include event entry, parking, entertainment, and unlimited food and drink from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Gold Level sponsorship is $1500 and includes eight-event-tickets and a Gold Journal Page. Silver Level sponsorship is $1000 and includes four-event-tickets and a Silver Journal Page.  Opportunities for industry sponsorship and participation are also available.

And remember, Society-In-Focus will be DONATING 25% OF ALL PRINT AND DOWNLOAD SALES FROM THIS EVENT to the American Cancer Society, so PLEASE help us help them!  Come visit our website after the event and purchase your favorite shots!

The Newlywed Game – CASTING CALL!

Hi Everyone!  Wedding season is upon us here on Long Island!  We just shot a fantastic wedding over the weekend and are really excited with the photos so far.  Some of them are already making their way to our Facebook page!  In the meantime, we’d like to tell you about a fun phone call we received yesterday…

Apparently the Game Show Network is currently casting for their sixth season of “The Newlywed Game!”  They are going to be taping in NYC this summer and they’re looking for super awesome couples who got married within the last 5 years.  The show is hosted by Sherri Shepherd (from “The View”) and airs nightly on GSN.  The best part?  The winning couple of EACH EPISODE wins a SECOND HONEYMOON!

They are looking for couples whose weddings or stories fall into the following special categories:

We’ve shot a bunch of weddings that fall into some of those categories, and I’m sure there are tons of other couples in the area who would qualify also, so if anyone is interested, just email
castingnewlyweds@gmail.com
with your full names, location, contact numbers/emails, wedding date, and recent photos (hopefully some that we took!)  Good luck!
