Share Ladies Perform & Israel Independence Day

The lovely ladies of SHARE held their 48th annual Boomtown Show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  This team of remarkable women has raised over $48 million to support developmentally disabled and abused children.

Some of the dancing darlings of the past included the wives of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis, Jr. (to name a few) and many of these gals are still strutting their stuff for the cause.

Among the gorgeous gals performing was September Sarno, whose Dad, Jay Sarno, was the Las Vegas legend who owned & operated Caesar’s Palace Hotel.

Slim & svelte September is a well-respected stockbroker and financial advisor on the Westside.  Also performing in the opening number was adorable Annie Gaybis (wife of actor/comedian John Byner) who just completed the starring role of Maggie, in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in Florida, and drove across country to dance in the SHARE show!

John will be appearing in Las Vegas from July 6th to July 17th at the Riviera Hotel in Vegas with Connie Stevens.

Sarah Gilbert, best known for her role in the TV series, Roseanne, and now creator & co-host of The Talk, received the Shining Spirit Award; and Marilyn Katleman, was selected as Member of the Year.  And the entertainer of every year — Michael Feinstein — sang his heart out for the SRO crowd, with tunes from his American Songbook, including my favorite, How Do You Keep the Music Playing by Alan and Marilyn Bergman.  His voice just keeps getting better all the time!

The Friends of the Israel Defense Force were out in force at the Century Plaza Hotel to promote top Israeli fashion designers, and support the young men and women who serve in the IDF.  Over 350 fashionistas were on hand to view the creations of Dina Bar-el and Natalia Romano to name a few.

Each designer created a one-of-a-kind dress inspired by the Israeli flag, that was later auctioned off.

The show was hosted by actress Shirley Brenner and former Miss Israel, Ilana Shoshan. Four fortunate soldiers from IDF joined them on stage. This was a most inspiring evening for us all.
