Special thank you to Emish and the Blarney Stone

    On June 17th, Gerard Mancini and I hosted "Suzy Fest" at the Warwick Valley Winery, along with 23 musicians, to celebrate the music of my wife, Suzanne, who passed away last September after a long battle with cancer.
    It was an SRO benefit show with all proceeds going towards a local family suffering with the effects of a cancer diagnosis.
    On that same evening, the band Emish was performing on the Green and band member Christy Halligan Brown, who spoke passionately about Suzy Fest, collected $310 from a very gracious audience.
    When Blarney Stone owners John and Lisa O'Connell heard what was happening, they donated $100.
    We are so moved by the compassionate spirit of Emish, The Blarney Stone and all of the audience members there that evening.
    Thank you.
    Your generous donations helped us raise a total of $6,000 and we are so grateful.
