LYNN WYATT honored at CASITA MARIA 2014 fiesta
CATCHING UP: Lynn Wyatt, Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg, and Santiago Calatrava were just honored at the CASITA MARIA “2014 Fiesta”. The Gala benefitting the Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education was held just a couple of nights ago at the Plaza NYC.
As has become the tradition, Jacqueline Weld Drake, Aileen Mehle, and Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia again served as the Dinner Chairmen. This year marked Casita Maria’s 80th year in New York City – no small feat for any organization. Our editor, Brigitte joined in the festivities mingling with guests at the cocktail, dinner at the grand ballroom and then some dancing to the music of The Bob Hardwick Sound and his Latino All Star Sound.
The benefit returned to The Plaza Hotel for this milestone year. As one of New York’s most glamorous parties, Fiesta brings together an international social elite from five continents. Always with a South American flair, the GALA supports the organization’s extraordinary work with children, teenagers, and their families in the South Bronx.
Some of the VIPS attending included: Fabiola Arias, Tony Bechara, Kelly Bensimon, Geoffrey Bradfield, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Brodsky, The Honorable Sila Calderon, Clara Brillembourg Chopivsky, Clara Tamayo de Brillembourg, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Juan Pablo and Barbara del Valle, Beth Rudin DeWoody, John Demsey, Charles and Ann Desollar Hale, Joy Marks, Dr. and Mrs. William Haseltine, Adrienne and Gianluigi Vittadini, Andreas and Elizabeth von der Goltz, Tanya Rivero Warren, Kristi Witker, and our editor Brigitte Segura,.
