Andrew had a great weekend for his Bar Mitzvah this past Saturday, October 19, 2013. His party that evening at The Virginia Beach Hilton Hotel Oceanfront was over the top. Thanks to the many awesome vendors that helped create this one of a kind party. At the top of the list is Reva Stein, event planner, who put this party together. Leslie Hartig designed and transformed the ballroom and hallways of the Hilton Hotel into a New Orleans styled Mardi Gras. Beautiful! Stage Right Lighting lit up the room with multi colors of light that never stopped changing the entire night, and projected scenes from New Orleans that filled the walls. Tom Johnson and staff of The Hilton were on top of their game, as always, and the scent of bananas flambe later in the evening filled the room. Prime Time, a Washington, DC based entertainment group, kept the party rocking all the way to midnight with great live music.
October 8, 2013, Bayville Golf Club. I enjoyed another year on the golf course with Charles Barker and team for this fundraiser for children’s charities. The Charles Barker Champions for Charity began 18 years ago. The goal of the charity is to raise funds in financial support of community programs and scholarships for youths in Hampton Roads like Preston Creech and Lane Malbon.
