Mayor's Celebration A Great Success
According to a just-published account by Bradley Zint in the Daily Pilot, HERE, the first annual Costa Mesa Mayor's Celebration was a huge success.
Since I did not attend - still wrestling with a nasty cold - I'll rely on Zint's account and anecdotal reports from the party for my information.
THANKS FOR SHARING
Thanks to those of you who have taken the time to share your observations with me. One person, for example, sent me a note late last night saying "$125 for a meal and I'm still hungry." I'm sure it was tongue-in-cheek.
MANY FAMILIAR FACES
Viewing the photos provided by Kevin Chang of the Daily Pilot in their article you'll see many familiar faces - lawyers, staffers, etc.
A HIGH-WATER MARK
One person I know who has been to a lot of events in Costa Mesa and other cities told me this morning that this was a high-water mark for our city. That made me smile.
A WORTHY EVENT
No word yet on just how much money was raised for the recipients mentioned in Zint's piece. It was a worthy cause, twice - once to honor Henry Segerstrom and Jack Hammett and also to provide financial support for The Arts in this, The City of the Arts.
KUDOS TO ALL
Congratulations to all who worked hard to make this a success and to Mayor Jim Righeimer for pushing his idea through.
