Studio 54 Comes To Town

By Kristin Stevens

The legendary nightclub Studio 54 may be long gone from the New York City landscape, but on the night of March 9, the Tower Foundation of Manhasset recreated the
glamorous mystique of the famed and fabulous disco with their 2019 dinner dance, “Studio 54!”

The event is the hottest ticket in town and sold out in days. The annual fundraiser was held once again at Plandome Country Club, and the revelers didn’t disappoint, as they dressed in their glittery best to boogie oogie oogie the night away.

Adding to the evening’s effervescence were ’70s-era “roller girls,” sparkling mirror-ball creatures and a funky soundtrack provided by DJ Steven Retas that kept partygoers on the dance floor all night long. An incredible array of raffles and silent auction items offered attendees the opportunity to further support Tower’s philanthropic initiatives, which this year focused on raising money to sponsor additional “Future Ready” classrooms in Manhasset’s schools.

“Our organization could not flourish to the capacity which we have throughout the years without the overwhelming generosity of our sponsors, donors, benefactors and event attendees,” reflects co-president Jodi Mondiello. “The success of the Tower Foundation of Manhasset has been accomplished through the mutual vision of enriching and enhancing the overall experiences of our Manhasset students. The entire board and community are thankful for your continued support and look forward to continuing our perpetual mission.”
