Welcome back to Cognacs Corner Magazine and My next Red Carpet Event
The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Board hosted an elegant and picturesque cocktail reception at the Breakwater Yacht Club conveniently situated at 51 Bay Street in Sag Harbor on Saturday, July 30th.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Breakwater Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing Program in addition to the I-tri Transformation. The Triathlon Program mission is to help at-risk adolescent girls.
Tourism Minister John Maginley attended the event and spoke about the benefits of contributing to this program.
Supporters and guests and enjoyed tropical cocktails, exotic hors d’oeuvres and steel drum music and dancing.
Hamptonites also participated in the silent and Chinese auctions and entered a raffle to win a week’s stay at the historic Copper & Lumber Store Hotel at Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua.
Inspirational Triathlon Racing International, Inc. (I-Tri) is an East End-based community non-profit intervention program that fosters self respect, personal empowerment, self confidence, positive body image and healthy lifestyle choices for at-risk adolescent girls. Through the sport of Triathlon and a curriculum of physical fitness and nutrition activities accompanied by self-affirming lessons, I-Tri participants develop healthy habits and attitudes that can last a lifetime.
During the event I interviewed President and CEO Robert B. Roden of Captain’s Guide Magazine who organized the event with his lovely wife Theresa Roden.
Socialite and Philanthropist Kevin Barba who summers in the Hamptons came to support the event and chat about projects he will be working on in the future.
