‘Oh, What a Night!’

Kravis Center Supporters Celebrate at Annual Black Tie Gala Featuring Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons

 

 

 

It was a delightful night of sensational entertainment and extraordinary food as the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts hosted its annual benefit gala on February 11. The black-tie dinner-dance included a hand-clapping hip-swaying performance by the real life “Jersey Boys” – the incredible Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons.

This annual fundraiser was once again chaired by 
Laurie S. Silvers,
 a member of the Kravis Center Board of Directors
who is Chair of the Employee Relations Committee and also serves
 on the Board’s Development Committee.

Ms. Silvers thanked the close to 400 attendees for their “support and commitment to the ongoing mission of the Kravis Center as the premier performance venue for international artists as well as local and regional arts groups. From classical to cutting edge, from pop and rock to Beethoven and Broadway, the Kravis Center is indeed the cultural beacon in our community. People count on us being here.”

She then paid tribute to the Gala sponsors, including 
Irene & Jim Karp 
and Henni & John Kessler for sponsoring the performance of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons; Helen K. Persson for sponsoring the magnificent Gala Décor; Kathryn & Leo A. Vecellio for the dinner by Special Impressions at The Kravis Center, Catering by The Breakers; Dorothy & Sidney Kohl for sponsoring the Dinner-Dance Orchestra; and 
Ingrid & David Kosowsky for the lovely Reception before the performance.  Ms. Silvers also acknowledged Stephen L. Brown, Gunster and Bill Perry, James W. Harpel, Jack & Goldie Wolfe Miller,
Jane M. Mitchell, The Breakers 
and Paul Leone, and her husband,
Mitchell Rubinstein
, for their sponsorship support.
 
William A. Meyer, Chairman of the Kravis Center Board of Directors, also thanked the crowd for its ongoing support, reminding them that their attendance at the Gala goes “a long way in helping us raise the $4.3 million we must raise each year just to approach breaking even.”
 
“This year the Kravis Center’s operating budget is $21 million,”
Mr. Meyer explained.  “Ticket sales represent just 80 percent of this budget so contributions from our loyal donors help us to balance our budget and keep ticket prices affordable.”

The Kravis Center’s annual Gala included a cocktail reception, prime reserved seating for the concert by Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, followed by a black-tie dinner-dance in the Gimelstob Ballroom in the Cohen Pavilion. The scrumptious dinner featured a study of seafood (chilled shrimp, sliced lobster tail, coconut-marinated jumbo lump crab and American caviar), sous vide beef tenderloin with sweet potato salad and goat cheese ravioli, sunburst squash and artichoke hearts, followed by a trio of chocolate desserts.

The dinner-dance entertainment was provided by Fred Astaire Studios of
Palm Beach County, and additional support was provided by Tiffany & Co.
