Boys' Towns of Italy Sixty-fourth Annual

Boys' Towns of Italy Sixty-fourth Annual

April showers didn't stop guests from pouring into the Pierre Hotel as Boys' Towns of Italy threw their Sixty-fourth Annual "Ball of the Year" Gala.

The night was filled with stars from all walks of fame. And who said you needed to be Italian to grace the red carpet? Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Lainie Kazan, Tommy Tune, Arlene Dahl, Luciana Gimenez and Mercedes Ellington were just some of the guests who attended.

Joe Piscopo took over as MC for the night and shared a few chuckles with the audience. The SNL alum had us all thinking it was 1983 again!

This year's honorees were master designer Domenico Vacca, famed for both men's and women's fashions. Broadway's own Liliane Montevecchi, who wowed the audience with her electrifying cabaret show. Veronica Atkins Mersentes, was honored for her "Humanitarian" work in the fields of health and nutrition. Her passion is childhood obesity and diabetes II, and her foundation is fully behind the effort. And, then came Lt. Governor of Connecticut Michael Fidele, and a wonderful night was had by all, especially those dancing to the Peter Duchin Orchestra.

With a fashion presentation from Domenico Vacca and a fabulous performance from Liliane Montevecchi, the gala lived up to the name "Ball of the Year."
