Tues, April 9, 2024 - a evening party

The Rosenblum family went back and forth on a lot of ideas and have decided that the best way to celebrate mom (Estelle Rosenblum) is at the April 9 Italian Night at the Sheraton Uptown where they are going to honor Mom, who established with Jim Hesse the Young Voices scholarship.

I'll relay the details as I receive.
