Jefferson Beautification, Inc. honored Dr. Joseph Rumage with the Frederick Law Olmsted lifetime achievement award for his continued support of beautification and environmental education.

The “April in Paris” theme came to fruition via a delightful Parisian atmosphere in pink and black, as well as a wall mural of Paris at night created by artist Michelle Martinez. The annual ensemble content brought out creative Parisian attire. Contest winners were: JoAnn Bohm, Laura Grasso, Joyce Laporte, Dr. Jane Miller, Debbie Mora, Dr. Henry Andressen, Rusty Bang, Jerry Fucich, Dr. Robbie Gaffney, Jeri Nims, Paulette Stewart and Valerie Hart.

The sit-down dinner featured French cuisine by chef Denis Hutley of Chateau Country Club. The Get Back Band provided easy listening and lively dance music. Entertainment by the Jefferson Performing Arts Society featured can-can dancers and aria by soloists.

Presented by Auctioneer Henry Shane, the live auction prize was a giclée by internationally renowned artist and Honorary Chairman James Michalopoulos.

Sharon Hannahan served as Event Chairman and Todd Matherne as Corporate Chairman; 320 attended the benefit.
