Theresa Magro, Vice President of Michael Magro Foundation, will be hosting an annual “Evening of Tasting and Giving” at The Carltun in Long Island’s breathtaking Eisenhower Park. The event is set to begin at 6:30pm EST.
From Long Island Magazine:
Some of Long Island’s best restaurants, bakeries and wineries will be available for tasting. At most recent count, 23 restaurants, five bakeries, and several wineries and breweries had signed on to feature their wares; there will also be a gelato station, as well as two martini bars.
Like any parent, when Ms. Magro’s 13 year old son was diagnosed with cancer, she felt helpless. It was 2005 and her son Michael, who was kind and had such a zest for life, was fighting for his life. Shortly after his diagnosis, Ms. Magro co-founded Michael Magro Foundation, to aid children suffering from cancer. A few short months later, Michael lost his battle with leukemia. In his memory, the foundation honors his life and continues to help other pediatric cancer patients.
Food will be served from the following restaurants:
Chris and Tony’s
Park Sports Bar & Grill
Palm Court Restaurant at the Carltun
Spuntino Wino & Tapas
The Farmhouse Kitchen
West End Cafe
Fat Fish Bistro
Sea Levels Restaurant
…and many more!
The annual event will be a celebration of compassion and giving, and baskets will be raffled off for charity. These include “A Girl’s Best Friend,” which encompass items from Michael Kors and Pandora; the “Everything Goes With Wine” basket includes a private wine tasting tour at Waters Crest Winery in Cutchogue, and a basket for those who love coffee—“A Jolt of Nespresso” featuring a Nespresso Pixie coffee maker.

The Michael Magro Foundation is a 501 ©3 non-profit organization, which was established in January 2005 to honor the life of Michael Magro, a 13 year old who was diagnosed with leukemia, and passed away within months of his diagnosis. During his illness, Mike never gave up; his remarkable courage and strength were an inspiration to all who were blessed to know him. Michael never gave up; to watch Theresa Magro in action makes one realize where Michael gained his tenacity and strength.
