Thanks For Partying With Us!

On Thursday, October 15, Hudson Valley Magazine hosted its annual Best of Hudson Valley® Party, a celebration of the area’s finest businesses, services, and eateries as voted by readers and editors. Nearly 1,400 guests gathered at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel for three hours of noshing, mingling, and dancing.

More than 80 businesses offered tapas, cocktails, and free giveaways. The event wrapped up with a raffle of items donated by Best of Hudson Valley® winners.

Live tunes from Hal Prince Music, Music Speaks Volumes, and Paul Green Rock Academy (“Best Music Program”) kept guests shimmyin’ through the night.

Hudson Valley Magazine is proud to partner with Best of Hudson Valley® Party Charity Beneficiary, Abilities First. Based in Poughkeepsie, the not-for-profit organization provides educational, vocational, residential, and habilitation services to people with disabilities and their families throughout the Hudson Valley region.
