Consider this a lookback at Boca’s Flavors and Grapes on the Green. More than 700 party animals packed The Addison recently for the Junior League’s popular wine and food tasting. Boca’s League president Cristy Stewart-Harfmann took time out to introduce co-chairs Karli Vazquez-Mendez and Emelia Fischer.
Honorary chair Cendyn Spaces’ Charles Deyo was there presenting his wife Robin. The pair are longtime League supporters and local philanthropists. Flavors had an international theme this year, so guests walked under a red Asian arch to get to six regions of the world. Chow to match with bars set up Epcot-style for tastings.
Global photographer Kourosh Keynejad’s realistic digital images were everywhere. “It’s my passion for people to see what they haven’t seen,” he said. Raised in Boca, now living in NYC, he was happy to be in his hometown supporting the League “to make sure kids have what they need,” he told Boca Voice.
“Fifty-percent of the art work benefits the Junior League,” said Melanie DeVito, The Addison’s marketing director. Daniel Events did the décor, she added.
A smaller but just as happy crowd gathered for Grapes on the Green. “This event is on a golf course, so we recommend…no heels,” guests were advised in advance.
The event was on the Oasis Championship golf course in the evening after play was finished at The Old Course in Broken Sound.
