Open Your Heart Cocktail Concert Benefits Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie
Poughkeepsie, NY – On April 15 the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie hosted their fourth annual Open Your Heart Cocktail Concert at The Grandview. Over 200 guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. The highlight of the evening was a musical performance by Christopher D. Macchio, which guests were treated to over dessert and champagne. Macchio, a New York Tenor and PBS star captivated the audience with his golden-era sound and emotive stage presence.
