Yesterday, the LKRE team attended the annual Chocolate Brunch at Ocean Cliff Resort which raised an impressive $47,000+ in funds for the Visiting Nurse Services of Newport and Bristol Counties. The sun was shining and the view was pristine- the food was absolutely decadent and the vibe was posh and elegant. Greeted with mimosas as we entered the ballroom, guests were dressed in their Sunday best as tunes by the Dick Lupino band trailed off in the background. The aroma of cocoa-laced cuisine danced throughout the room, building the anticipation of when brunch was actually served. There was an extensive silent auction in the foyer offering luxury items ranging from weekend getaways, family photo shoots and stunning artwork.
As we took our seats which overlooked a sparkling Narragansett Bay- we were greeted by the hostess with the mostess, Janis Gordon who threw this fabulous shindig together with her trusted team. Our fearless leader Libby (who served as co-chair of the event) was invited to the stage where she eloquently expressed her gratitude towards the Visiting Nurse Services as they were instrumental in her mother’s recovery from cancer years ago. Once the speaking portion concluded, we were free to enjoy the tantalizing menu which we’d been waiting for- any how delicious everything was. One of our favorites was the Hot Cocoa bar- adorned with rich gourmet toppings like shaved white chocolate, ground espresso chips, peppermint stick, ginger cubes and freshly whipped cream!
A huge thank you to all who supported this event!
