Darien residents Rory Callahan, Pieter Hartong, John Novak and Tim Stisser hosted the third annual “Christmas Cocktails for Person-to-Person” last month. Two hundred people attended the December event at Louie’s Italian Restaurant & Bar in Darien, which is co-owned by Hartong.
Through a combination of ticket and t-shirt sales plus a silent auction – with donations from Darien Butcher Shop, Darien Cigars, Darien Sports Shop, Donelan Family Wines, Le Boudoir, Louie’s Italian Restaurant & Bar, Pure Barre, Sail to Sable, The Stanwich Club and Wee Burn Country Club – the event raised $8,500.
We are very thankful to the hosts, auction donors and guests for so generously sharing their holiday spirit to benefit P2P clients.
