American Stage Gala Under the Stars raises more than 47000

04.17.09 Todd Olson, producing artistic director, drew applause as he spoke about the new Raymond James Theater at St.
Petersburg College. “I can tell now that the theater is done,” he said. “And it’s beautiful.” Volunteer of the year awards went to Hal Freedman and board of trustees chair Evan Whittle. Scott Wagman chaired the event committee, which included Jean Carnes, Linda Champagne, Barry Dingman, Robin Grabowski, Gayle MacKinnon, Jacqueline MacNeil, Mirella Smith, Cathy Swanson, Mary Harden Wall, Angela Bond and Shannon Orrell. 04.18.09 The intimacy of Argentine tango lent an air of elegance and mystery to the eighth annual Medallion Gala benefiting the St. Anthony’s Hospital Foundation. “Tango Argentina” was the theme, and Tampa Tango’s Victor Crichton led a team of performers who danced during the cocktail hour, then starred in an after-dinner floor show in the Palm Court Ballroom of St. Petersburg’s Renaissance Vinoy Resort. The entertainers included Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo, who represented Argentina earlier this year in NBC TV’s Superstars of Dance.
Crichton, whose depth of knowledge about the tango is impressive, explains the uniqueness of the Argentine version as compared with other forms.
