CELEBRATING 15 YEARS!.....BY JUDI BAMBAS Kim Galea Ed Ginter It was an electrifying evening at Angelo’s & Vinci’s Ristorante on September 28, 2008. Our charming Cassandra Gray hostess for the evening was Cynthia Peck, owner of Angelo’s & Vinci’s. She and her late husband, Steven, Beverly Gunter have hosted the FIES Dinner/Auction Fundraiser for 15 wonderful years. This was the topper! Cynthia Betty Hughes Nancy Jordan went out of her way to make this a very special evening for FIES…she even arranged for a portion of the Joanne Larson event to be filmed for a cable television station! FIES Board President, Barb Jennings, had a little surprise Ruth Musser Merry Rossini for Cynthia to commemorate our 15 year collaboration…a thoughtful plaque which expressed FIES thanks Dodie Sailor to her and the Angelo’s & Vinci’s team for their generosity all these years. The spontaneous standing Julie Walson ovation for Cynthia and her team made the moment that much more special. This was a record-setting Judith Weiss year…over $50,000 net was raised to help fund FIES programs! Our thanks go out to the fabulous SUPPORTING CONGREGATIONS: committee members who made the silent auction tables and the dining tables look spectacular! The Anaheim Presbyterian Church Brea Congregational Church dinner was scrumptious, as always. Of course, our inimitable Auctioneer, Henry Jones, managed to close Brea United Methodist out the evening with his show-stopping wit and ability to get those bids for the Live Auction.
