On Saturday, the Islanders Business Club kicked off its first season with an outdoor tent party that rivaled even some of the glamorous cocktail parties in Los Angeles. The stars were out in full force, including Christie Brinkley, Entourage's Kevin Connolly, Islanders greats Mike Bossy and Bryan Trottier as well as Islanders owner Charles Wang.
The Islanders Business Club is set for its second event in three games when the Rangers visit the Islanders on Wednesday. Among the guests at the event will be ESPN broadcaster Neil Everett.

During his time as a Sportscenter anchor, Everett is known for adding Hawaiian surfing sayings to the show's famous repertoire of catchphrases.
Born in Portland, Oregon and raised in Spokane, Washington, the University of Oregon alum started out at a radio station in Florence, Oregon, then went out of broadcasting for over 15 years working at Hawaii Pacific University as an athletic administrator.
In 2000, Everett received his big break when an agent offered him a job at ESPN on the recommendation of a friend. Everett has been there ever since. Before his ESPN debut, he worked as a sports director and reporter for KGMB, Honolulu, Hawaii's CBS affiliate.For more information about the Islanders Business Club, please contact Catie Bennett at CBennett@newyorkislanders.com or call (516) 501-6703 to speak to a representative.
