VEGAS LIVE! was a HIT!
The Young Patronesses of the Opera had a wonderful and successful gala on November 2, 2013. Vegas came alive at the JW Marriott with the raffle wheel and showgirls; sitings of Vegas legends such as Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Liberace; and of course being serenaded by ELVIS truly made it special. But the most heartwarming part with the tribute to our Past President, Louise Todaro, for her over 50 years of service to YPO’s educational programs. A video was presented which showcased her life and all she has done for YPO and it gave a wonderful insight into our organization’s history. The Past President’s who were present joined Louise, President Patricia Mederos and the gala chairs on stage to assist in the honor. Elvis even sang, “Love Me Tender” to Louise and Patricia at the end of the presentation. Louise was overjoyed by the warmth and recognition.
The evening was a huge success including the support of generous benefactors and a fabulous silent auction. The money raised that evening goes to our educational programs to bring opera education to the youth in our community.
