I would like to thank all the guests (Over 200) who attended the art exhibition opening on Saturday July 24, 2010. "La Orchesta de Los Taino" played some beautiful music and I was glad to see the addition of two teenagers to the band. I was very happy to see so many close friends and family and also happy to meet some new faces that visited the event on this day. I had fun talking with everyone and enjoying the great food and music. My happiest moment was when my mother Margarita attended as she has been sick for sometime and unable to attend family functions or get out of the house. She enjoyed all and stayed till the end of the opening. I also enjoyed visits from some very famous artists like Lenny Kislin, Antonio Perez Melero, Bruce Ackerman, Patrick Wing, Elisa Pritzker, Franc Palaia, Tarryl Gabel, Bill Ryback, Claudia Gorman, Michael Sibilia, Nestor Madalengoitia and Dick & Margaret Crenson. Many longtime supporters also attended and it is such a great feeling when you look up and see all these people who mean so much to you attending your exhibition and enjoying some Art, Food & Music with you. I am very grateful for all and thank GOD for all my blessings.
