What a spectacular night we had celebrating the Young Patronesses of the Opera’s

60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Gala

As of Miami’s oldest arts organizations, YPO was proud to celebrate our 60th Diamond Jubilee year, as we hosted a sparkling evening  of dinner and dancing at our “Diamonds & Divas” Gala on November 7th at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove. Attendees enjoyed a cocktail hour that included a silent auction and entertainment, followed by dinner and dancing to the sounds of the Drew T Band. Special Guest, Broadway and Opera Diva Lisa Vroman, dazzled the crowd with a ‘can’t miss’ performance. Master of Ceremonies for this historic event was non other than one of Florida Grand Opera’s leading opera experts, Justin Moss. YPO’s Co-Presidents and Gala Chairs, Debbie Campbell and Barbara Reese also honored YPO’s amazing and talented Past Presidents for their years of service. YPO is truly thankful to our Benefactors: Bunny Bastian, Trish and Dan Bell, Betty Brody, Brenda Nestor Castellano, and Swanee and Paul DiMare, as well our corporate sponsors, supporters and attendees who helped make our event a success. Please see below! 

We hold a gala the fall if each year but there are other ways to support YPO’s Education Programs. YPO is a 501c3 organization that accepts donations and grants. For more information, contact
