Life is a cabaret

A good portion of the crowd making its way into the Longue Vue Club, Penn Hills, on Nov. 22 were dressed for the occasion; however, those that weren't at least had a good excuse.

“Life is a cabaret, my dear,” said a costume-free David Fitzsimmons, husband of 25 Club prexy Susan Fitzsimmons.

With a goal of supporting newborn medicine and neonatal research at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and the Magee-Womens Research Institute, The 25 Club Cabaret drew the likes of co-chairwomen Peggy Snavely and Jennifer Fusilli, Bobbi Aiello, Jeanne Caliguiri, Dani Grego, Debbie Barbarita, Arlene Sokolow, Judy Woffington, Heather Hillier and Carol Massaro.

Kathe and Jim Patrinos underwrote the performance by the Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artists, although some of the guests had something else in mind.

“They're going to get up and do a dance later,” said Barb Mendlowitz of Magee Drs. Stephen Emery and Jon Watchko.
