Guests Dance the Night Away at Sunset Jazz 2013
Sunset Jazz 2013 kicked off with the smooth vocal talents of Shari Lynn and Jimmy Borges. It ended with guests dancing on the Great Lawn to the Latin beat of Son Caribe. In between, there was a little something for everyone.
The annual benefit concert, hosted by Lynn and Borges on Sunday, September 8, drew over 300 guests to the La Pietra campus for a delightful evening of music under the stars. The amazing lineup of musicians and vocal artists included Sacha Boutros, a Grammy nominated jazz songstress, Aidan James, a 12 year old ukulele sensation, Phoebe Fox, a La Pietra senior and select choir member, the Sunset Jazz All-Star Band, and Eddie Ortiz & the Son Caribe Band.
In addition to the wonderful music, guests were treated to wine courtesy of Young's Market Company and Johnson Brothers of Hawaii, favors provided by Archipelago Hawaii and desserts prepared by Eberhard "Chef Hardy" Kintscher of Michel's at the Colony Surf. Chef Hardy also created a spectacular selection of pupus for guests at the Louis Armstrong Tables; others enjoyed the gourmet picnic baskets exclusively designed by Chef Hardy for Sunset Jazz 2013.
