NYC Restaurants Our Troops”

 

Top NYC Chefs & Restaurateurs Send Cooking Tips, Support to Our Troops

 

Campaign Culminates With June 30, Gala Celebration

Third Annual NYC Marines Mess Night Dinner Raising Funds for
 Marine Charities

 


June 30, 2010 

 

 

New York, NY - The New York City Marine Corps Council
("NYC Marines") announced today the launch of a spirited campaign that will send YouTube messages from home to our troops overseas and to show support to those returning from duty. 

 

The NYC Marine Corps Council is reaching out to top chefs and restaurateurs asking them to buy a ticket for a Marine to attend the June 30, 2010, Mess Night Gala. In return, The NYC Marine Corps Council will videotape a message that will be posted on YouTube (at “loveourtroopsnyc”) and promoted through Twitter  (@loveourtroops) and mainstream media, including local and national TV outlets.

 

Legendary Elaine Kaufman of Upper East Side Eatery Launches Campaign

 

Elaine Kaufman, the legendary proprietor of the eponymous Upper East Side eatery, has recorded the first video greeting for “NYC Restaurants ♥Our Troops.  “God Bless You and please come home soon,” she urges. On the recording, Elaine recounts her joy that members of the military often spend their leave time in her establishment enjoying the spaghetti bolognaise in her homey environment before shipping back out. 

 

Elaine’s video, which launches the campaign, can be seen here.

 

Food & Liquor Companies, Hotels & Everyone Who Loves to Cook
Can Participate

 

Food companies, cookbook authors, hospitality, liquor and spirit companies and anyone who loves to cook at home are welcome to participate. In addition to purchasing a single ticket, a table can be purchased for10 vets. That price includes a free one-page ad in the Mess Night Program. Participants who buy tables are welcome to join their guests at Mess Night.

 

Participants can also donate gift certificates for meals, hotel rooms and other NYC services to veterans and for gift bag and silent auction items.

 

Third Annual Mess Night Celebrates 65th Anniversary of V-E Day,

Recreates a 1945 Waldorf-Astoria Dinner Attended by Eisenhower

 

Incorporating the expert guidance of master chef, photographer, author and food historian Agostino Von Hassell, the third annual Mess Night Dinner will be held again at the New York Athletic Club on Central Park South on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.  This year, in celebration of the 65th Anniversary of V-E Day, Von Hassell and his guest chefs will do a faithful recreation of a 1945 historic menu served first in 1945 at a dinner held at the Waldorf-Astoria, attended by General Dwight D. Eisenhower. Full historical information and photographs about that event are available at www.nycmcc.org

 

"There is no other event like it in New York City." said Jeff Carusone, President of the NYC Marine Corps Council. "Mess Night is a unique opportunity for guests and the military men and women to share in our time honored customs while we honor those who have served our nation and their families, both past and present.” 

 

How to Participate in the “NYC Restaurants ♥Our Troops” Campaign:
 

Full details are available at the NYC Marines website, www.nycmcc.org in the “NYC Restaurants ♥Our Troops” section.

About "Mess Night"

“Mess Night” is a venerable Marine Corps tradition dating from the 1500s that few civilians experience. The event encompasses a cocktail hour, an opulent feast, good cheer and a range of fines for violating guidelines of the mess, which all guests are informed of at the onset. (Violations include foul language, chewing gum, rapping glassware for attention, rearranging table settings and discussing politics, shop, money or religion. Fines begin at $1 and escalate to $30 for “NYC elite” and civilians. Proceeds will benefit the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation.)

General Alfred M. Gray, Jr. a distinguished military leader and a former Commandant of the Marine Corps, Headquarters Marine Corps, Washington, D.C., will be the Military Guest of Honor at the third annual New York City “Mess Night.”

See www.nycmcc.org for full details.
