The Elegant Lady in Red Gala 2012
More than 500 supporters of LIFE gathered December 1, 2012 at The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach for The 19th annual “Lady in Red” Gala, a Night of Stars. This traditional kick-off to the Palm Beach social season was a spectacular success with celebrities, local dignitaries and socialites gathering to raise funds for LIFE’s partnership with American Humane Association.
The evening began poolside under the stars with the exotically beautiful Russian-American concert piano virtuoso, Lola Astanova, who magnificently performed the 3rd movement of the Rachmaninoff 2nd Piano Concerto. Lola was joined by the incredible talents of the Palm Beach Symphony under the baton of Daniel Alfred Wachs. Next, guests were serenaded as they enter the Grand Ballroom by the 90 member Nova Choir singing Broadway Hits. Then the King of Late Night TV, legendary Tonight Show host Jay Leno kept the party going with his raucous wit and humor. The fun continued as the Sultans of Swing took the stage and kept everyone dancing the night away!
All proceeds from the evening will benefit LIFE’s partnership with American Humane Association (AHA) which includes a program to protect the voiceless and the vulnerable in our society – abused and neglected children and animals. Programs that will be served are in Palm Beach County, including a large Pet Mobile for adoption purposes.
