Gilda’s Club Worldwide hosted a benefit on October 9, 2007 aboard the prestigious SeaFair Grand Luxe. Viewing this five-level ship was an amazing experience; each gallery space was seemingly more stunning than the one before. Guests munched on decadent nibblers, sipping champagne and milling about the gorgeous space.

Co-chaired by Meredith Vieira, Rafe Totengco and Carmen Marc Valvo, the event was overflowing with emotion, passion and truly inventive art pieces. The Sapore, Luxe Lounge, and International Coffee Bar were truly beautiful areas of the yacht and provided a glamorous backdrop for the displays of the twenty-eight jewelers, antique dealers and art galleries.

The focus of the evening was the noble work of Gilda’s Club Worldwide (named for the late great comedian Gilda Radner), a charity which provides support for families living with cancer.

The SeaFair Grand Luxe was only in town for five days before it sailed away leaving behind a memory of a wonderful evening of art and laughter.
