The event, attended by nearly 600 industry professionals, featured painter David Garibaldi and The Fab Four, a Beatles cover band. The Condé Nast Bridal Group partnered Frederick Goldman in hosting the celebration.
Garibaldi painted portraits of rock legends John Lennon, Mick Jagger, and Elvis as he danced, jumped, and strategically threw paint on canvas to the music of his subjects. All of his work was completed in approximately 20 minutes as guests danced and cheered him on.
“This was one of the most entertaining shows I’ve seen,” said David Rocha, executive director of Jewelers for Children, who’s organization was the beneficiary of proceeds raised via a raffle organized by Frederick Goldman Inc. Goldman raised $5,000 for the charity by holding a raffle for two of Garibaldi’s paintings.
“My father, Frederick Goldman, started this company 60 years ago and I have to believe he would be proud of the way the business continues to support our industry’s charity,” said Jonathan Goldman, chief executive officer of Frederick Goldman, Inc.
After the art exhibit, The Fab Four took the stage. The four performers looked, acted, and sounded like The Beatles when they first performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
