Monte Carlo Night A Smashing Success
August 13, 2011 - A sold-out event, EuroCinema Hawai'i’s Monte Carlo Night held at the gracious estate of Prince and Princess Vittorio and Dialta Alliata di Montereale was a smashing success. DJ’s Brendan Bradley and James Stone set the beat with hip lounge sounds with guests while they played casino games including Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, and Poker. Raffle drawings on the half-hour tickets were drawn on the half-hour for premium prizes including bottles of Cristal, a tasty Wine Library, luxurious Hotel Packages, and gorgeous bags from PRADA and FENDI. The Cigar Bar was especially popular - offering rare flavorsome imports and epicurean scotch. The full moon added a special elegance to the evening, taking breaks from gaming, guests danced to the soon to-be-released CD of Candes Meijide Gentry, while others strolled the grounds admiring the sweeping views of the city. Many thanks to Prince and Princess Vittorio and Dialta Alliata di Montereale, to our Monte Carlo Chairpersons Princess Liz Kawananakoa and Beth Carbone, to our generous sponsors: PRADA, FENDI, The Moana Surfrider, The Sheraton Waikiki, HonBlue, Chris Faldo (Mr. USA), Dave Rezendes, Mark Ramelb, Evan Loney and to the EuroCinema Hawai'i Board all of whom worked tirelessly to make this a truly great event. All proceeds from this event are earmarked for EuroCinema Hawai'i financial awards for Hawai’i based student filmmakers.
