The June Tent Party raises more than $72,000 for the community
It was an evening of fun and fellowship, a time to enjoy fine dining and joyful dancing. Thanks to a record turnout and dozens of civic minded sponsors, the Warwick community was a big winner last Saturday evening.
The Warwick Valley Rotary Club and St. Anthony Community Hospital received a significant boost when a record gathering of 325 guests attended the fourth annual June Tent Party on Saturday, June 6, on the Great Lawn at Mount Alverno Center in Warwick.
This year’s event raised more than $72,000. All proceeds will benefit the Warwick community.
The June Tent Party, chaired by Rotary President Leo R. Kaytes, was held under a large white tent surrounded by trees, bushes and plants provided by Jansen Nursery. All tables were decorated with colorful floral arrangements donated by Corwin Florist.
Upscale silent auction items earned $10,295.
The event also offered valet parking, cocktails and dining catered by Bellvale Market, a dessert table plus dancing under the stars to music by CloudNYne.
“We attempted to make this a bigger, better and more inclusive event this year,’ Kaytes. “With the help of many community minded volunteers and sponsors, I believe we succeeded
“I’d like to thank all my committee members and extend a special thanks to Cindy Vander Plaat for doing such a great job on sponsorship and the June Tent Party Journal, which appeared as a supplement in The Warwick Advertiser,” he added.
