50 and FORWARD
FIFTH ANNUAL SPRING GALA
Festive Cocktail Reception
Helmsley Park Lane Hotel, Central Park South
May 14, 2012
Guests will be treated to a performance by the critically acclaimed
Stephen Holden of the New York Times effuses, "Mr. Nadler, who sings, dances and plays piano (aggressively and well) is a madly extroverted contemporary vaudevillian whose artistic lineage embraces everyone from Al Jolson (in his ferocious singing) to Mr. (Tommy) Tune (in his goofy, long-legged hoofing)."
Mr. Nadler has performed with the New York Pops Orchestra and has been a soloist with the Baltimore Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Oregon Symphony, Ottawa Symphony and others. We are sure to enjoy his abundant gifts!
Bid spring welcome in regal style in the heart of Manhattan. We will be celebrating in the elegant Park Room, with Central Park looking positively gorgeous in fresh bloom.
In addition to Mark Nadler, there will be live music featuring talented Stevenson musicians, libations and virtuoso cuisine, a silent auction, and a festive atmosphere.
Come join us to congratulate the Honorees, reconnect with old friends and make some new ones, browse for bargains and just enjoy!
An early peek at the silent auction features:
- a week stay in Amsterdam
- a Kindle e-reader
- Tea Service for 4 at Alice's Tea Cup
- a lovely Waterford Crystal Carafe
- Personal Fitness Training Sessions
- . . . . . .and much more
Tempt your tastebuds throughout the festive reception with butlered hors d’oeuvres and a full open bar.
