Diamonds & Dudes September 23, 2011
“The event of the season” was held once again at the spectacular Pier Top of the Hyatt Pier Sixty-Six hotel. With the guests arriving in droves, the paparazzi snapped away; perfectly chilled Champagne and luscious treats were offered to all. The sounds of vocalist Kimona filled the air, this party had begun. The 150 guests dined on a scrumptious multi-course dinner paired with fine wines as the interesting program began.
Howard Dvorkin, Bill Feinberg, James D. Franskousky, and Dr. Carlos Jurado were the gentlemen being honored. Their philanthropic deeds have made a huge difference to the lives of women and children in our community and they so deserve this honor. Brenda Franco served as Honorary Chair for the 2nd Annual event, “Diamonds & Dudes”. Speaking for the organization, Founder, Kelly Cappola and CEO Marion Applegate introduced the men being honored; Wish Ambassador, Jane Vicale touched on the needs of the women that have been helped. Joel Connable of Travel TV News acted as emcee for the evening and delighted the audience with his quick wit and warm spirit.
