THE F1 VIP PARTY 17

PARTY PERFECTION

While I hadn’t stopped into this rock & roll celebration in awhile, I was pleased to note that the cool vibe had gotten even cooler at the spirited annual F1 GP event, pioneered and masterminded over a decade ago by Claireview Leasing’s MAURICE “MO” KASPY.

This year’s edition, at beloved Montreal eatery Beatrice, was as vibrant as ever – a magnet for moguls – that forged fabulous new alliances with fellow hosts Paysafe, Samsung, and Planete Mobile, while spoiling one and all with impeccable Beatrice fare, singular entertainment, and ONE HOT CROWD!

VA VA VROOOMMMM!!!!!
