NORTH SALEM, N.Y. - If you have a yen to pull out that old Superman costume or doll yourself up like Madame Butterfly, Friday, October 21, is your chance. North Salems local hot spot, 121 Restaurant, is hosting its 2nd annual Halloween Masquerade Benefit at the elegant Salem Golf Club and it promises to be loads of fun and scrumptious as well.
The gala will benefit Autism Speaks and a correlating organization, Navigating the Spectrum. The owners of 121, Executive Chef Peter DeVito and Michele and Joe Savino, are committed to raising funds for this particular cause partly because it has hit close to home.
Speaking on behalf of the owners, Jessica Siregar said, They know it touches the lives of many of their patrons and friends. Autism now affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys in the United States. Co-owner Peter DeVito said, 121 wants to recognize and honor what so many people in our community are going through. Its an incredible party for an exceptional reason.
The list of prizes in the silent auction include a week at Mount Snow Summit Resort, box seats at the Prudential Center to see either the Nets, the Devils, or Disney on Ice, a 3-bedroom beach house at Montauk for a week in June, and many more opportunities.
But wait! There is a live auction as well, and the prizes are a table for six at Raos, a night at the Plaza Hotel with breakfast included, and a dinner party for eight at your home, catered by Executive Chef Peter DeVito.
Add a Harvest Food buffet, an open bar, dancing to music by GQ Productions, and a chance to win an iPad or 42 flat screen T.V. for the Best Costume. It sounds like a wonderful evening for an important cause.
The party starts at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21, at the Salem Golf Club, 18 Bloomer Road, North Salem. Tickets are $75 and are available online or at the door.
