“This is a top Las Vegas act—the country’s #1 Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons tribute show—they have played to sold-out crowds all over the world! We are very fortunate to have them at our gala,” said Judy Primavera, foundation co-founder and president of the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation. “It’s a fun night out for a good cause with something for everyone—excellent entertainment, delicious desserts, and a wide array of ‘must have’ auction and raffle items to bring home.” 

There are chances to win Delta skybox seats to the red-hot Yankees vs. Angels, September 18 game, theatre tickets, sports & Marvel comics memorabilia, gift cards, spa packages, and baskets of goodies.
