Last night's gala at the Four Seasons was beautiful. I've included a few photographs Sergio snapped on his i-phone. Much thanks to Jeff Smith for inviting us to join him at his table and James, his partner, for being an excellent host introducing us to their friends. It was a fantastic evening from start to finish. Thanks to some aggressive bidding from Sergio we're now the proud owners of a new painting from the Brazilian-born, Boston artist, Fernando de Oliveria.
Jeff's attention to detail was evident through out the program; even down to the exquisite table settings and dramatic centerpieces.
After dinner and the evenings' heroes were recognized the program concluded with a surprise appearance from cast members of Wicked, which is currently in Boston. Elphie and Glinda performed three numbers accompanied by only the baby grand piano at their side. After the performance they were gracious enough to pose with me for a quick picture.
After the event, we went down to the Bristol Lounge, and had a nightcap. Steve A. was good enough to come and join us rather than meeting at Club Cafe.
