Martin Viette Nurseries hosted their first annual Grill Night, Thursday June 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. The event was one of many that the business sponsors.
The evening was full of fun, featuring a special showing of the Lexus LFA supercar, music provided by Perfect Party NYC, grill demonstrations, and more. Stellar Meats provided meat for the occasion, and several chefs were grilling samples.
There were special discounts for all who attended on any merchandise purchased during the event. Every attendee had the option to enter his or her name in a raffle to win a brand new Kamado Joe Grill.
A putting contest was held. Prizes included a book written by sportscaster, Ann Ligouri, and three private yoga or Pilates sessions sponsored by a local yoga instructor.
Martin Viette is not just a garden center with a full service staff, but it also has a wholesale division, a landscape division, and a retail store.
“It’s a small business, but a large family business,” said, Russ Ireland III, co-president of Martin Viette. “It sometimes feels like I see the staff more than I see my own family. The staff here becomes family.”
The business is very involved in the community with both the fire and police departments, as well as the Interfaith Nutrition Network.
The events do not stop here though. On Friday, June 14 Martin Viette is hosted an event called “Art in the Garden.” All proceeds go to the Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District. Look out for Ladies Night in the fall as well.
