At the Back Bay Horse Farm in Virginia Beach on a Sunday in March, 100 invited guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner from the region’s top chefs, wine pairings from a local sommelier, and cigar and bourbon tastings. Bison played live music, and Leslie Hartig Floral Design provided flowers; vehicles from Land Rover and jewelry from Long Jewelers were on display. This Distinction spring event benefited The Joy Fund. Many thanks to our event sponsors: Long Jewelers, Ethan Allen, Phillips Automotive Inc., Emerson’s Tobacco, Heineken Worldwide and Brown-Forman.
