Last Thursday I had an opportunity to attend the Best of Delaware 2022 Celebration, sponsored by Delaware Today Magazine at the Chase Center on the Riverfront.
It was great being out and about again, and even more exciting because my friend and fellow Encore Entrepreneur Gandhi Hurwitz, was voted the Best Landscape Art Photographer.
I remember being voted the Best Blogger Upstate back in 2013, so I know how exciting it is to be chosen for this prestigious Delaware honor.
The Best of Delaware Party is a great fundraising event with live music, jam packed with not only the winners in various categories, including Food and Drink, Fun & Leisure, Home & Garden, People & Media, Shopping & Services, but with attendees and supporters who you haven’t seen in years. It was truly a pleasure to mix and mingle and of course sample some of the decadent delights from the food and beverage category winners.
Gandhi and I first met in 2017, at the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce as we were both starting a podcast and now he is the owner of Gandhi Hurwitz Photography in Rehoboth Beach Delaware.
According to Gandhi’s website, “I have been named ” Delaware’s Best Landscape Photographer by Delaware Today Magazine, and will be exhibiting for the second year in a row at The Best Of Delaware Gala at The Chase Center on the River front in Wilmington. All proceeds go to charity, and I enjoy donating wall art to various charitable auctions.
I believe in giving back to the community. I also exhibit annually at The Brandywine Festival of the Arts in downtown Wilmington, Delaware, which is in its 61st year. Please join me to say hello at either of these wonderful events, or at The Sean Kelley and friends’ art gallery on Penny Lane in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where I’m a longtime resident artist. I’m also a member of The Rehoboth Art League, which is a wonderful place to visit.
My art is meant to be shared, and taken into homes, hung on walls, and felt by my friends and family, and people like you who share my love of the land, and feel the same way. Thanks for joining me here, and taking the time to view my work, and read a little of my story, which is of course, just like your’s, still being written.”
I also had an opportunity to interview Gandhi, so head over to my TikTok Channel to take a listen.
In addition to speaking with Gandhi, I also took time to network with several of the vendors during the VIP hour and there was a lot of good food and beverages to sample. Below are a few of the many appetizers available from just a few of the BEST OF DELAWARE winners!
If you ever get a chance to attend a Best of Delaware mixer, make sure you go, you won’t regret it and you can see more pics on my Instagram page as well.
