The three-day event will commence with a Sunday wine tasting and a private dinner. Monday will follow with the CIROC Celebrity Welcome Party at the alluring 23rd floor Mandarin Bar, with a live performance by vocal sensation Brian McKnight. The evening’s co-hosts, professional golfer and fashionista Seema Sadekar and ESPN’s Jay Harris, will introduce celebrity guests and announce golf tournament pairings.
