Treat yourself to an elegant and fun evening, and help The Children's Home of Poughkeepsie at the same time.  It's the 4th annual Open Your Heart Cocktail Concert on Friday, April 16 from 6-9pm at The Grandview in Poughkeepsie.

The evening begins with a cocktail party featuring hors d’ouevres and an open bar and continues with an hour long musical performance, seated dessert and champagne.  Performing this year is PBS Television star Christopher D. Macchio, a classically trained tenor who sings a broad range of musical styles, ...including grand opera, Italian folk songs, Broadway classics, and contemporary crossover hits.

Boris and I had the opportunity to work with The Children's Home of Poughkeepsie during our holiday gift drive.  We found them to be an awesome organization with a rich history in the Hudson Valley.
