Bootlegger 21 Vodka Presents:

An Homage to...

A one-night celebration of Harlem glamour
*First 100 guests receive a free drink ticket!*

Produced by Michael Arenella and Adam Aleksander

The fabled Cotton Club of Jazz-Age Harlem is reincarnated for one night in a four-story Soho townhouse. Featuring an All-Star program of hot music and dance, decadent Bootlegger 21 cocktails, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, real casino games, fresh hand-rolled cigars and an after-hours lounge offering further unspeakable delights.

Downstairs - the joint is jumpin' with live hot jazz, starring Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra in front of a REAL WOOD dance floor. In addition an All-Star program of tap dance, risque follies and floorshow revue is in store. Document your night of frivolity in our vintage-style photo booth. Gorgeous cigarette girls strolling the club offer candies, gifts, and - cigarettes.

In the upstairs lounge - while our lovely chanteuse and piano-man set the mood, guests are invited to try a hand at poker, craps and blackjack with fabulous prizes, enjoy fresh cigars hand-rolled on premises, and other surprises.

The Cotton Club was, at the frenzied height of the Jazz Age, the Mecca of all that swung, shook and shimmered. At once an emblem of status and taboo, sophistication and lust, it was a cocktail of well-heeled "high hatters" in search of a deviant thrill mixed with the exotic, jazz-fueled pulse of Harlem night culture.

Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra

The 44th Annual Cancer Ball
At The Fairway Farm, 381 Cooper Road, Middletown, NJ

The American Cancer Society will host one of New Jersey's most extraordinary social events, the Cancer Ball, at "The Fairway Farm", a picturesque estate, in Middletown, NJ. The event, which takes place on Saturday, June 11, 2011, will honor Norma and James Tignanelli of Holmdel.

The 2011 Cancer Ball, "The Roaring Twenties" will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a VIP reception and cocktails. It will be a spectacular night under an elaborate array of festively decorated tents, including gourmet dining from Abigail Kirsch, dancing to the sounds of live entertainment from New Life Crisis and live & silent auctions. Jovial 20's music and dancing by The Minsky Sisters and Drew Nugent & the Midnight Society will also set the mood.

Year after year, the Cancer Ball has been the venue for the American Cancer Society to honor its community partners. This, our 44th year, we are honored to celebrate Norma and James Tignanelli, distinguished humanitarians and longtime American Cancer Society supporters. Mr. Tignanelli is President of High Point Insurance, another Cancer Ball benefactor.

Since 2000 alone, the Cancer Ball, an event that typically draws approximately 600 attendees, has raised approximately $15 million dollars in the fight against cancer.

Proceeds from the gala will help support American Cancer Society programs and services for cancer patients and their families, including Road to Recovery, which provides free round-trip transportation for cancer patients to doctor visits and treatments, and Reach to Recovery, a program which pairs trained volunteer breast cancer survivors with newly diagnosed cancer patients to help them cope with their diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Patients and families can access help any time of the day or night by calling 800-227-2345 or online at cancer.org.
