“Hottest” Summer Networking Party “Luau at Sunset” A Success!
The Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce hosted another great evening networking party as Chamber members had a chance to experience a night of tropical fun, festivities and great networking at the most anticipated business event of the summer. “Luau at Sunset” recently took place at Crab Meadow Beach in Northport with a record number of attendees. This unique event, whose premiere sponsors were Outback Steakhouse, Harbor Design & Build Group including their partners Precise Design Studio and Ambassador Home Improvement and Verizon Communications, featured live tropical music by the renowned Jayobe band, great food, exciting raffle prizes and an opportunity for Huntington’s business leaders, residents and community members to walk barefoot on our own tropical Huntington beach while networking and conducting business with colleagues and friends. Highlights of the evening program included the ability for attendees to take hula lessons from authentic Hawaiian dancers; tasting of North Fork’s premier wines from Raphael Winery; sampling of great brews from Long Island’s very own Blue Point Brewery and a chance to ride the mechanical surfboard from New York Party Works. For those who wanted to relax after a day of work, free massages were provided by Massage on the Run. Northport’s Caffé Portofino offered specialty coffees and Huntington Village Herrell’s Ice Cream provided a delightful free ice cream treat as an end to a fantastic evening. In addition to the premier sponsors, supporting sponsors who made this evening possible included Walsdorf Insurance, AXA Advisors, Blue Point Brewing Company, Raphael Vineyards, Newsday, JVKelly Group, VIP Basket Store, New York Party Works, Tailored Events, Senator Carl Marcellino, Kushnick & Associates, Herrell’s Ice Cream, Caffé Portofino and Massage on the Run.
The weather was wonderful, the event was spectacular and a great night was had by all. The evening provided a wonderful opportunity for our Chamber members, potential members, and the many invited guests to join together and get to know one another. Several new faces were at the event and the Chamber is fortunate to have new members including Harbor Design & Build Group, Precise Design Studio and Ambassador Home Improvement who, by utilizing their Chamber membership opportunities, have already contributed significantly to the local business community. Outback Steakhouse’s new Manager, Jamie Connolly, also jumped in and took the lead to ensure all our attendees were well fed.
“We are very thankful for the support and contributions of our Chamber sponsors and volunteers who enable us to coordinate such great programs for our members. This year, we were able to build upon the core foundation of our event through the help of our Premier Sponsors, Outback Steakhouse, Harbor Design & Build Group including their partners Precise Design Studio and Ambassador Home Improvement and Verizon Communications and the generous support of our valued supporting sponsors. The success of this event would not be possible without them,” explained David Walsdorf, Huntington Chamber Luau Event Chairperson.
