An Evening of Bluegrass and the Belmont Stakes at the Endeavor Cocktail Party


Two hundred guests gathered under a beautiful tent, styled by La Maison Fête, on the grounds of the Endeavor Farm in Bedford, NY, for the annual Endeavor Summer Cocktail Party on June 11. The fundraiser benefited Endeavor Therapeutic Horsemanship, an organization that provides riding lessons and training, particularly to individuals with special needs and at-risk youth. The evening began with an exciting live stream of the Belmont Stakes, which suited the event’s setting on a horse farm. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres like truffle cheese toasts and Cajun grilled shrimp, created by Hannah Gorman & DinnerThyme in Bedford, and sipped pomegranate martinis while a Brooklyn-based band, Handsome Hearts, played bluegrass music. The party was slated to end around 8:30 p.m., but guests lingered for nearly two more hours, enjoying the lively atmosphere.
