My View: Steve Gives Eda The Best Birthday Present Ever

My View: Steve Gives Eda The Best Birthday Present Ever

My idea of a surprise party is to call a wonderful Palm Beach (and NYC) friend and ask her to help me plan a surprise party for my wife Eda. Excited when she offers to take charge, I then tell Eda, “Sunny Sessa is so wonderful, she’s helping me plan your surprise party.” It was a great month in Palm Beach starting with friend Dick Robinson’s Legend’s Radio Gala honoring Deana Martin and her dad Dean Martin and culminating with a some of the greatest friends one could have gathering in Palm Beach with this Stephen, Steven Reineke, music director/conductor The New York Pops, and Steve Tyrell. Eda thanked all the Steve’s in her life and all the very special people that gathered to help her celebrate the “next chapter”. Watch the video to see Steve give the best present ever.
