The year of 2013 marked Moffly Media’s 9th consecutive celebration of their “Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut” which honors and illustrates the best that Fairfield County has to offer! Everything from restaurants to retailers, spas, bands, and more participated in the most exciting celebration of the summer. Moffly Media publishes Greenwich, Westport, New Canaan ∙ Darien, Stamford, Fairfield Living and athome in Fairfield County magazines as well as ilovefc.com serving Fairfield County. This event showcases the winners of the magazines’ annual readers’ and editors’ survey. This year we had an astonishing amount of over 13,000 votes! The “Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut 2013” party attracted more than 1,500 people and over 100 participating restaurants, retailers and entertainment. Moffly’s event has unceasingly grown and expanded year after year, with 2013 marking the fourth consecutive year of the event being held at the Stamford Hilton.
Throughout the evening musical bands Short Bus and Merlin played as hundreds of guests took to the dance floor. In between dancing, guests and attendees were able to sample from a wide variety of martinis, barbecue, steak, chocolates, luxury goods and more, all voted the Best in Fairfield County.
We were very excited to host the recently crowned Miss Connecticut, Kaitlyn Tarpey. Kaitlyn was an exciting presence at the event and was available for photo ops and autographs for all guests and attendees. In addition to Ms. Tarpey we had special appearances by the Stamford Museum and Nature Center’s kid goats, Kathie Lee and Hoda, who were featured on the Today Show and named after the hosts!
The July/August issues of Westport, New Canaan ∙ Darien, Fairfield Living and Stamford magazines, and the July Issue of Greenwich magazine, which hit newsstands on July 1st, announced the winners, as well as details regarding the celebration at the Hilton.
A portion of the proceeds was donated to Kids in Crisis, a non-profit organization based in Cos Cob, CT. The mission of Kids in Crisis is to protect infants and children of all ages from abuse, neglect and the effects of family crisis through free counseling services, emergency shelter and community educational programs. We thank the attendees and their support towards this meaningful cause.
