Match on the dance floor
APCG President Coco Love thanked
Harold Seeley for recreating Hollywood, complete with chandelier, a box office,
and traditional photo op scenes, DJ Chuck McT working his Hollywood themed
magic, catering by SHK Catering Service with plenty for all and I hear great
desserts with a chocolate fountain.
The ever disappointing water taxi
service pulled the outrageous stunt of delivering me at 8:45PM and demanding that
I leave at 10:30. Therefore I missed the entertainment and the costume contest.
Reliable sources inform me that prize winners of $200 cash and an “Oscar”
trophy apiece were, for most debonair, Lee Sharmat as Zorro; for best Hollywood
portrayal, Dr. Patrick Frattelone as Esther Williams.
Sylvia and Shirley Shapiro and Ruth and Susan Freedner were
Other contestants in the debonair category included Carl Luss as
“Cheetah’s wrangler;” SallyAnn Piacentino; Charlton Heston; “Big Daddy,” a
Colonel Sanders look alike; Sherri Rase as a French detective; Charles Young;
and Marge Cozzolino. Robin Kradles; Jerena, as Grace Kelly’s baby sister; Bella
as Sophia Loren; China; Amy Rosen; Jo Jo Gerard;; Joyce Rodgers; and Taffeta
were among the others competing for most glamorous. Trying out for best
Hollywood portrayal were Victor Alfieri, as “Toy Story I” and “II;” Jack Ruolo
as Tom Cruise in “Risky Business;” Dr. Rick Byrd and Brian as Laurel and Hardy;
Lois Pisano, Joann Tavis, Doreen Rallo and Bobbi Green as “The Wizard of Oz”’s
Dorothy, the Tin Woodsman, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion; Harold as
Mickey Mouse; Gary Greene as the casting couch; and Shannon as Marilyn Monroe.
