Kravis Center Members Share a Sedaka Serenade After Annual ‘Thank You’ Dinner



The evening wasn’t so much “Laughter in the Rain,” as it was sunny songs throughout the evening. That’s what the members discovered during the recent annual dinner honoring Kravis Center Founders and Grand Sponsors, Sponsors and Patron Members of the Dress Circle.

On Friday, March 30th, more than 200 members and guests attended the fun-filled event that began with a cocktail reception in the Harris Pre-Function Hall, followed by a scrumptious three-course dinner in the Weiner Banquet Center’s Gimelstob Ballroom. Northern Trust, which has supported every one of the Kravis Center’s fundraising efforts since the original building campaign in 1992, was once again the sponsor for this very special evening.

In fact, William A. Meyer, the Kravis Center’s Chairman of the Board, gave special thanks to Michael Bracci, president of Northern Trust, for the financial institution’s longtime support of the performing arts center.

Mr. Meyer thanked the members for their continued support and investment in the Kravis Center’s mission of ensuring that audiences will enjoy “the world’s finest performers in a venue truly worthy of their talents.”

Describing the Kravis Center as “a unique landmark that is a source of tremendous pride for all of Palm Beach County,” Meyer reminded attendees that ticket sales and other earned income cover only 82 percent of the Kravis Center’s operating expenses. The other 18 percent needs to be raised each year through contributions from individuals, corporations and foundation grants.

Mr. Meyer then emphasized the significant role played by Dress Circle members. While the Kravis Center has 6,700 annual members who collectively contribute $4.2 million, 57 percent of this total – or $2.4 million – came from only 132 donors.

This special evening was capped with a performance by master showman, singer and songwriter Neil Sedaka in the Dreyfoos Concert Hall.

One of Rock and Roll's legendary icons, Sedaka wowed the crowd with his string of hits, “Calendar Girl,” “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do” and “Laughter In The Rain.” His performance was generously sponsored by Alec & Sheila Engelstein and Zelda & Allen Mason.
