Well our big fundraising Gala evening was a huge success and I am very proud with the turn out. The theme of the evening was the period 1920-1930 so everyone was encouraged to dress up the part. Turns out that I have worn my tuxedo in PEI more often than anywhere else, though usually people dress in a more comfortable way given that we are all about agriculture, beaches and a relax atmosphere, but when the occasion calls for something different we know how to do it. The evening was a success and we raised quite a bit of money for the Symphony which will be helpful for the operations and musicians.
Our photographer Bev did a superb job as always. cardsbybev.com
It gave me a chance to wear my white cashmere dinner jacket.
Here are some photos of our evening.
Here we are with the PEI Symphony Maestro from Julliard in New York City, Mark Shapiro.
With Katie Kerr, who has appeared in many musicals at the Confederation Centre and was Anne a few years ago. An incredibly talented person it was by pure coincidence that we found our home in Charlottetown through her and her husband.
