The event, designed by Rafanelli Events, began with cocktails by Manhattan Moonshine, which debuted the world’s first premium un-aged whiskey, and beer from Montauk Brewery. In addition, guests enjoyed canapés served by Acquolina Catering, overlooking the grounds of the estate. The cocktail reception featured a special performance by US Marine Combat Veteran JW Cortes and a car display courtesy of Six Sigma Auto Group. Following the cocktail reception, guests enjoyed a special VIP dinner in the Hornig’s barn, which featured a special performance by the incomparable Rachel Brown.

Notable attendees included Lee Woodruff, Joan & George Hornig, James Lipton, Jane Hanson, Chris Cuomo, Cristina Cuomo, Gerry and Liz Byrne, Anna Throne-Holst, Adam Sikora, Robbie Browne, Yolanda Garretti, William Kehler, and Mack Woodruff.

All of the proceeds of the night will go to the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which was founded by ABC News Correspondent Bob Woodruff and his wife Lee after Bob was hit by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq in January 2006. The then Co-Anchor of World News Tonight was given access to all of the proper treatment enabling him to fully recover within 13 months from the traumatic brain injury he received. Their experiences inspired them to help make sure our nation’s heroes have access to the resources they deserve, for as long as they need them.
