LONG ISLAND PULSE MAGAZINE HOSTS ANNUAL “ISLAND TASTING” TO BENEFIT ISLAND HARVEST
Despite the effects of Hurricane Sandy, Long Islanders joined together at Huntington’s Coindre Hall to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger.
Huntington, New York – Resilience was the overriding theme last night as three hundred guests poured through the exquisite doors of Coindre Hall, in honor of Long Island Pulse’s Island Tasting, the event to support Island Harvest, our island’s biggest food rescue organization.

The sounds of glasses clicking and joyous laughter, paired with gleaming light cascading off the chandeliers, made for a night filled with elegance, philanthropy, and vitality. Rather then bow to Sandy, Long Island Pulse continued their plan to host the fifth annual Island Tasting, to raise money and awareness for Island Harvest. Long Island Pulse Magazine’s Publisher and Editor, Nada Marjanovich addressed the crowd, “Under normal circumstances one in ten people accesses Island Harvest’s food banks. We can only imagine how that number will rise exponentially as the after shocks of Super Storm Sandy continue.”

Despite still damaged roads in this predominately water front town of Huntington, guests swarmed to Coindre Hall, to taste delicious offerings from over twenty of Long Island’s top restaurants and food, wine, and spirit vendors, as they bided on luxury raffles throughout the night and danced to the live jazz trio.
