In real estate, networking is a key component to success. However, while we network, we also have wonderful opportunities to meet fantastic people, who then become friends, and we are sometimes offered the opportunity to help one another in different avenues.
When I received a call from Amir Asadi to attend the 4th Annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction, of course I said ‘yes!”. Amir, one of the Committee Members, is always involved in one philanthropic venture or another, and his name can be seen at so many charity events. He is a member of the Rotary Club, and I have had the pleasure of first meeting him over 3 years ago at the REVamp Networking Group. and Amir’s charm and intelligence has always been a constant where ever he goes!
The March of Dimes is an important charity, and this year’s event was a great success. The evening commenced at 6 p.m. with top local restaurants such as the Crabtree Kittle House, Trevi Ristorante, Mima, The Crystal Spoon, G & K Sweet Foods, Longford’s, L’Inizio, The Rye Roadhouse, Slovenia (vodka!), The Yonker’s Brewing Co., Chutney Masala, Zwilling Cooking School and Cooper’s Mill.
There was music, a silent auction, and the atmosphere was charged as the evening progressed with an auction, and introductions from this year’s Emcee, Mary Calvi whothen made the introductions for this year’s honoree Martin Ball, who is the Senior Vice President and Banking Head at Customers Bank Private Commercial Banking Division, Dr. Shetal Shah who was this year’s Excellence in Advocacy Award Winner and the Mission Speaker, Zachary Lopane (a wonderful and eloquent young man).
A great event. A marvelous evening. A worthwhile charity. Thank you Amir.
Westchester is GREAT!
