The unflappable spirit of the Roaring 20s returned for the more than 200 guests who attended the Four Seasons Ball.
Inside the Patterson Club in Fairfield, the ball patrons sampled cuisine, danced to the band Cracked Ice and took in the ambiance of this high-spirited era. Not the typical gala, attendees played bingo and heads or tails and bid on the “Adopt-A-Home” program.
The Kennedy Center’s 48th annual Four Seasons Ball was co-chaired by Robert and Barbara Scinto of Fairfield, while the chair of the Tribute Journal was Kathy Miller of Milford. Through their efforts, the charity event raised $97,000 for The Kennedy Center’s residential services for people with disabilities. Since its inception in 1964, the Four Seasons Ball has raised more than $1.7 million.
Paul Miller, president and chief executive officer of Miller Nissan in Fairfield, was feted as this year’s Tribute Journal honoree. A leader in the automotive industry for more than 48 years, he has developed a long standing reputation for honesty, integrity and support of the community. He is also a trustee of the Norma F. Pfriem Foundation.
“The Kennedy Center does exceptional work for people with disabilities and is a wonderful place for its clients and employees to work,” Miller told the crowd a the ball.
“The staff and volunteers at The Kennedy Center are very caring people,” U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal said. “Their work is truly inspirational.”
“The Kennedy Center is a great institution,” state Rep. Tony Hwang said. This evening’s ball is a testament to the legacy of Evelyn Kennedy Center, its founder, and your support is truly priceless.”
