Save the date. It's April 13, and it's 6th annual Open Your Heart Cocktail Concert to benefit The Children's Home of Poughkeepsie from 6-9 pm at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie.

The evening begins with a cocktail party featuring hors d’ouevres and an open bar and continues with a 45 minute long musical performance, seated dessert and champagne.  Performing this year is Neil Berg's Rockin' Broadway, a performance that recreates the greatest moments from the finest Broadway shows of the century featuring the actual stars of shows, as well as some of Rock and Roll’s greatest songs from legends like, Elton John, Billy Joel and Linda Ronstadt. Neil Berg presents brilliantly revived arrangements of classics from both Broadway and Rock and Roll.

Boris and I work with The Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie during our holiday gift card drive.  We think they are an awesome organization with a rich history in the Hudson Valley. For more information about the Open Your Heart Cocktail Concert visit the website at
