posted in: News 0

The 2016 Black and White Masquerade Ball was a smashing success! Everyone dressed up in their best black and white and the masks people wore were fantastic. Judi Bosworth came to present proclamations to both of our honorees, Beaumont Jefferson and Doug LeClaire. Also in attendance were Mayor Peter Cavallaro, Deputy Mayor Joan Boes, Trustees Bill Wise and Steve Corte and Village of Westbury Justice Tom Liotti. With over 100 people in attendance it was a great party with food from Cafe Gino’s, Kabul Kabab and Maria’s Bakery, music from RPM DJ and raffle prizes. The black and white film reel that accompanied the DJ set the mood and the dance floor was soon packed. Raffle prize winners went home with wine, jewelry, original works of art, a kindle fire and more. Congratulations to Beaumont Jefferson and Doug LeClaire for being honored at this annual event!
