The Sinai Soiree, an annual Halloween event in its 7th year, was held on October 29th, 2016. This year, the highly anticipated fundraising party thrown by Mount Sinai Foundation, was held downtown at the CBC Atrium. The theme of this year’s event was Dia de los Muertos or in other words, Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday celebration.
Not only was this event for a great cause, it was also a fun way to celebrate Halloween with friends. The night was filled with Mexican inspired hors d’oeuvres, a candy bar, a photo booth, a live DJ, a dance floor, and two complimentary margarita bars by Tequila Tromba.
In true Day of the Dead fashion, some party-goers dressed like skeletons and painted a skull on their face. Other guests chose to mix it up and wore costumes that ranged from Mickey and Minnie mouse, Corpse Bride, firefighter, astronaut, mermaid, pageant, Waldo, lion, Red Riding Hood, a Smurf, Frida Kahlo, to a deer-like Patronus from Harry Potter.
Proceeds for the event went to support Women’s and Infants’ Health at Sinai Health System. The raised funds went towards helping the foundation to purchase a Panda Resuscitation Warmer, which is an over-bed warmer for newborns.
It was definitely a night to remember. Be sure to check out the Sinai Soiree 2017!
