Attendees celebrated in splendid style at the Grand Re-Opening of LOKEY Infiniti, held Thursday, February 20th at the LOKEY Infiniti Building at 19740 US Highway 19 N in Clearwater. The event was held in celebration of LOKEY Infiniti’s extensive, seven-month-long remodeling project that was recently completed.

The celebration ensued in earnest as Rich Bekesh from Spring Engineering and Sharon Boraski, Vice President of Lokey Motor Company, cut the ribbon with Debbie Thomas at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony by the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce. Guests attending the LOKEY Infiniti Grand Re-Opening Event enjoyed delicious fare provided by Island Way Grill including cocktails, grouper bites, pulled chicken tostados, shrimp cocktail, and hogfish & beef sliders.

Cigar aficionados and those who wanted to try a cigar for the first time were treated well at the premier event. World famous Tampa Sweethearts Cigar Company was a hit, featuring Arturo Fuente, Jr. and his nephew Josh Fabelo; both were at the Event autographing and handing out complimentary cigars. Tampa’s ManCave Cigar Lounge and Barbershop owner Darren Alvarez and fiancé Catrinna were there and many in the crowd were able to witness their amazing skills at handrolling cigars.

CC’s Cupcakes was on-site to make sure LOKEY Infiniti’s Grand Re-Opening was as sweet as it was fun. Owner Carol Sarhaddi made an assortment of her delicious designer cupcakes. Can you imagine anything better than an assortment of heavenly cupcakes including blueberry-lemon, carrot, almond, salted caramel, chocolate-peanut butter and red velvet; each topped with a variety of flavors of Carol’s butter cream and cream cheese frosting, sprinkled with silver sparkled sugar crystals and adorned with a white chocolate Infiniti symbol – pure decadence!

The mood was happy thanks in part to DJ Jeff Tarquinto from Grant Hemond & Associates. He kept the party moving with a variety of upbeat and fun dance hits from all eras. DJ Jeff Tarquinto has a sparkling personality and involves the crowd, which is why he has been the DJ for many LOKEY events.

Speaking of great tunes, guests grooved to Mix 100.7 FM Radio. Jeff Liss made it happen! He brought out the Mix 100.7 Party Van to entertain guests as they arrived and walked around the many beautiful display vehicles out in front of LOKEY Infiniti.

Jessica kept the party going on the outside welcoming guests as they were having their vehicles valet parked. Most couldn’t resist looking at all of the amazing, luxurious vehicles lined up in front of LOKEY Infiniti – don’t you want to take a test drive?
