The walkway was opened to the public on October 3, 2009
It poured and poured on Thursday, more rain predicted for Saturday and Sunday, but Friday, October 5, 2012, was a perfect day (and night) for Starry Starry Night. A benefit celebration on the Walkway and the Walkway’s biggest fundraising event of the year.
There were 8 honorees. Right photo: Fred Scheaffer, one of the honorees and the walkway’s major player.
The event, attended by hundreds of supporters, was a huge success. Among the attendees were many state and local dignitaries.
The beautiful weather plus the delicious food and wine contributed greatly to the festivity of the event and everyone had a grand time.

Above photo: Main Course chef/owner, Bruce Kazan, putting together the duck course (one of the 5 food stations). The other 4 are paella, pasta with broccoli raab, roast beef/ turkey sliders and a chicken dish (no photo).
Hors d’oeuvres were passed, below are photos of 6 (don’t know all the ingredients in each item, so I will just list the ones I recognize).
Scallops in Chinese spoons, tuna in cones, smoked salmon on crackers, figs with goat cheese (on polenta?), steamed Chinese dumplings and Thai chicken. (I am sure each one has a fancy name but there was no menu).
Desserts were also passed. They are: bite-sized apple pie, baked apple in a spoon, bread pudding (?) and chocolate cup.
