Tuesday, March 6, ,2018. Partly sunny, windy and colder yesterday in New York with temps dropping to the mid-30s. Another Nor’easter is in the forecast for tomorrow.

Down Jamaica way, there were more than 100 private jets in the Montego Bay airport for the big week at Round Hill where Josef Forstmayr had organized a week of events.

The first night was the Jamaica night, with dancers, fire eaters and a fabulous buffet. Then came the Sugar Cane Ball, an annual black tie dinner dance on the beach with 400 attending. The evening benefited the Hanover Charities raising several hundred thousand dollars for the children of Jamaica.
The setting for the 2018 Sugar Cane Ball — A 1920's Soiree, Grand Speakeasy — was the Seaside Terrace at Round Hill
