On Monday, March 21, Carlyle on the Green will be the site of the first Long Island Hospitality Ball, a food-industry showcase to benefit the American Cancer Society. Newsday’s James Bernstein has the scoop on the genesis and goals of the event. Here are the culinary details:

The organizers of the ball include such heavy-hitters as Keith Hart (Argyle Grill & Tavern and Barrique Kitchen & Wine Bar in Babylon), the Bohlsen family (Prime in Huntington, etc.), Brian Rosenberg (Sugar in Carle Place) and Jay Grossman (Two Steak & Sushi in New Hyde Park, Four Food Studio in Melville).

Accordingly, the 100-plus establishments that will prepare the event’s buffet dinner are among Long Island’s most prestigious. In addition to those previously named, participants include Besito in Roslyn and Huntington, Riverbay in Williston Park, Cipollini in Manhasset, Nisen in Woodbury and Commack, Rein in Garden City, Sweet Karma in East Meadow, Fiorello Dolce in Huntington and Cardinali in Syosset.

See the full list here.

Tickets for the ball start at $100 and can be purchased here or by calling 631-300-3460. Carlyle on the Green is in Bethpage State Park, at 99 Quaker Meeting House Rd., Farmingdale.

Barrique in Babylon is among the restaurants participating in the Long Island Hospitality Ball, which benefits the American Cancer Society.
