Proost! The Jay Heritage Center’s Nieuw Amsterdam Soirée is in the books! More than 200 people descended on the Jay Estate last Saturday night for a glittering celebration of the Jay family’s (and the entire region’s) rich Dutch heritage.

Guests bedecked in orange and blue nibbled on Dutch tastes and treats prepared by Scarborough Fair — including Voorn croquettes, stroopwaffels, and tiny grilled sandwiches made with cheese by Beemster, another of the many Dutch sponsors. Bartenders poured Heinekens and mixed Dutch 75s, cocktails made from champagne and Bols genever, a juniper-flavored Dutch spirit. Lucky guests Eliot and Andrea Martone took home a state-of-the-art electric hybrid bike donated by Van Moof and valued at more than $3,000! Octane turned in a virtuoso performance, keeping the dance floor packed all night.

All the night’s proceeds go to support the JHC’s growing slate of educational programs in history, social justice, and environmental stewardship. The “phenomenal!” Soirée co-chairs included Tracy EdwardsInga MaoChristy SchultzeJoan Steere, Emily Kindler Tisdale, and Marie-Anne van Roijen!
