On April 9th, the Beverly Hills Hotel was transformed into Studio 54 when Disco Queen Maxine Nightingale hit the stage and was joined by the more adventurous guests at the A Faire of the Heart gala. The dancing at the end of the evening capped off a memorable night that celebrated the extraordinary accomplishments of Cloris Leachman, Dr. Phillip Musikanth, and Laurie Hasencamp, Esq. In a room filled with friends, family, and fans, these honorees received standing ovations for their work to promote equality, housing rights, and health.
Hal Sparks was a brilliant Master of Ceremonies who smoothly steered the evening from the most heartfelt moments - a speech by one of our clients - to the hilarious - Cloris Leachman stuffing her glass award into her dress.
The event was a financial success thanks to the tireless efforts of our wonderful Event Committee led by Warren Wimmer and Dave Walsh.
