Hot Opera: Recent Events Successful

From Cindy Niggemyer, Opera Guild President:

I sincerely hope that you all are surviving this record-breaking winter! While the temperature is cold, OPERA’S HOT. I think everyone that attended the Gala: Ladies in Red can agree on that. It certainly was a wonderful performance. I know of one non-opera-going couple who bought tickets to "Faust" because of it. So let’s give a loud round of applause to Toledo Opera.

Our Guild was recognized as a major sponsor of Ladies in Red because of our $20,000 donation from the Mad Hatter event. Thank you to Susan Conda, Karen DeNune and Shirley Joseph  for helping with the candy given out after the gala.

Our Celebrity Wait Night was also a big success with a profit of about $8,000. Thank you to Chairman Shelli Jacobs and Cochairmen Barbara Baker and Barbara Brown. The Bettingers' Packard car set the theme in front of Rosie’s and everyone had a wonderful time.

We finish our events this season with Phashion of the Opera on Thursday, April 3rd. Cochairmen Brian Hazel Bahrs and Traci Schwann are planning another great show along with the help of Diane Rusk, Retail Chairman and Karen DeNune.
