de Seversky Mansion, Old Westbury
Chef’s Secrets is not just an event; it’s an experience to remember. Each year the Long Island Network of Community Services, Inc. (LINCS) hosts this outstanding charity event, attended by hundreds of guests at the de Seversky Mansion in Old Westbury. Proceeds raised help fund programs for the Long Island Association for AIDS Care, Inc. (LIAAC), by either helping to ease the lives of those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS throughout Long Island.
Chef’s Secrets is a wine and food tasting event boasting some of the most sensational culinary dishes and beverages anyone could ever encounter. Tasting stations and beverage tables are set up throughout the mansion where guests can alternate through the many rooms where colorful and aromatic dishes are prepared right in front of your eyes, by some of the most renowned chefs on Long Island. The fun continues on…as guests continue through the night going back for seconds and thirds of their favorite dishes and beverages, the scene is set to pique the interest of the risk taker in all of us. An auction boasting champagne taste items in carefully wrapped baskets for a steal starting price brings out the dreamers and deal seekers. The competition gets fierce as guests battle out the bidding on the many luxury items offered. The beautifully designed Chinese auction baskets contain such high quality items as gift certificates to Long Island's best restaurants, local and NY theater tickets, gift certificates, performing arts packages, local getaways, wines, salon packages and more. If knowing what you are getting seems too easy a score, perhaps the Mystery boxes are perfect for you. One box, one price, and no idea what’s inside, but the guarantee is the prize is always worth more than the price charged.
