WE HONORED FYVUSH FINKEL

As the crowd trooped into the auditorium, they encountered a few familiar themes, the
warm welcome from Arlene Schachter, our House Manager, and her volunteer ushers including her two daughters Robin Gore and Ellen, along with Libby Palius, Elaine Davis, Howard and Sheila Krupnick, Patti and Alan Hoffen, Staci Antler, Roz Kramer, and Nan Spector. The clock in the auditorium showed the time as three hours later (New York time), as the New York melodies and music of the Manny Harmon orchestra filled the air. The greetings from our “Coney kid” - our own "master" master of ceremonies, Stanley Ralph Ross was another reminder of the long history of our event and the overwhelming rendition of America the Beautiful by the incredible Robbie Britt was the frame to begin another evening of mirth and entertainment.

The familiar sound of laughter rang throughout as many in the crowd met, for the first time, Brooklyn comedian, Sal Richards and we welcomed old friend Sammy Shore back to our stage. Rich Little was his remarkable self, the voices of Pamela Blake, (Evita), Jordan Bennett. (Les Miserables), and international singing star, Aliza Kashi soared wonderfully.

In an evening of highlights, former Melting Pot winner Don Newcombe brought his powerful presence to bear when he introduced our second Melting Pot award winner – Jefferson High’s Sol Levine – and retired Beverly Hills Superintendent of Schools Don told Sol that Sol was now the second player on "Don’s Team" that Sol would be batting second. Sol’s words aptly expressed the sentiments of many. His thoughtfulness in bringing his wife, Marilyn on stage, added a very nice touch. no credit check payday loans

Watching “the Finkel Family” on stage, with wife and mother. Trudy Finkel , in the audience added very special touch to the evening. After three and a half hours of merriment, the evening came to a close. As the audience left into the night, one could hear the phrase, "wait until next year."

Our gratitude for another job well done goes to the gifted team led by co-producers Johnny Francis and Buddy Arnold, technical director Ed Schachter, lighting director Ken Palius, stage managers Michael Siegman and Steven Schachter, video coordinator Ira Goldberg, and the entire stage crew of students from Beverly Hills High School who worked in an harmonious manner in having created another memorable experience. To Jon Alexander, a special thank you for being the best trouble shooter in the land.
