Lighthouse International held their Light
Years - Lighthouse International Salutes the Arts gala on
Monday October 20th at Cipriani 42nd Street. Chuck
Scarborough serves as emcee for the night and other notable
guests came to support the organization, such
as Somers Farkas, Joanna Mastroianni, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Joanne
De Guardiola, Arlene Dahl, Jamee Gregory, Hilary Ross, Amy
Fine Collins and Karen Lefrak. This year's honorees
were Iris B. Apfel, Michael Feinstein, Mario Buatta and
Katherine Oliver. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg stopped
through to honor his colleague "K.O" a.k.a. Katherine L.
Oliver, Commissioner of the New York City Mayor's Office of
Film, Theatre and Broadcasting. Mayor Bloomberg served
as guest speaker and when leaving, had the room full of
applause and hopeful cheers of a suspension to his term
Brian Stokes Mitchell took the stage with a beautiful
acoustic version of "What a Wonderful World," and
praised his fellow performer extraordinaire Michael
Feinstein. While accepting his award, Mr. Feinstein
surprisingly turned to the orchestra asking for a key in F.
Gala goers were blissfully shocked by Feinstein's rendition
of a specially worded song about Lighthouse International.
The evening was a hit and Lighthouse is thrilled with the
amount of support they
had to help
salute the arts.
