The Five Towns was thankful to have hosted a truly unique and tasteful event like never before! Lev Leytzan: The Heart of Therapeutic Clowning, Inc., a 13-year-old nonprofit organization known for its incredible services to the community, put together an event that treated one’s taste buds in a new and exceptional way. The event’s name really says it all–Cosmos and Confections! An array of Italian pastries and mixed drinks inspired the crowd with some new and original ideas for the Shavuos menu. The event committee synced their innovative talents to create an exceptionally classy evening that celebrated the organization and Shavuos. Lev Leytzan thanks the incredible committee: Melissa Fuchs, Neal C. Goldberg, Barbara Goldenberg, Tobi Goldfeder, Terri Herenstein, Malkie Gordon Hirsch, Chanie Holzer, Tamar Sicklick, Leah Sobel, and Ilanit Sternberg.
All the attendees were blown away by the mixology presentation by Sebastian. He explained how to mix unique flavors and ingredients to make the most colorful and delectable cocktails. Following Sebastian, Mr. Robbie Schonfeld from the Ossie’s Memorial Toy Drive gave an emotional speech about some of the work he has witnessed Lev Leytzan do in Israel over the past 13 years. Mr. Schonfeld gave the audience a glimpse into just how life-changing their services can be. This speech as well as a moving video allowed the attendees to see some of the programming that Lev Leytzan arranges both in the United States and abroad in order to improve the lives of those who are suffering. Afterward, a real highlight of the evening, the attendees were treated to a presentation by authentic Italian chef Mr. Paul Sapienza of Sapienza’s bakery on Long Island. Mr. Sapienza described some of the tricks of the trade when it comes to baking and culinary techniques. He showed how to make his world-renowned cannoli cream–available for purchase in his store–and explained what ingredients work best together. The tips were just in time as we prepare to create our own dairy delicacies on Shavuos in just a few short weeks.
Lev Leytzan was proud to able to offer an incredible array of raffle packages for those who attended the evening. With prizes such as Botox sessions, gym memberships, restaurant gift certificates, and more, the evening of Cosmos and Confections gave ample opportunity for each woman in attendance to feel pampered.
Proceeds from the evening will allow Lev Leytzan to provide additional home visits to children with cancer, homebound seniors challenged with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and children and adults living their last days in hospice.
