Devoti Unveiled

Friday, August 9th, about 700 people showed up for the world Premiere of Devoti. The evening began with a cocktail hour with live music performed by Kathryn Bisanti & Mark Morello. As guests made their way in to the Witherspoon Concert Hall, the Santa Lucia Festival Band performed their familiar marches.

Dave Webber, the Master of Ceremonies, opened the evening with introductions of the production team and fundraising committee. Mike DiGiacomo, Jennifer Mandolfo Carey, and Pete Soby provided some brief remarks about the project. Guests were then shown the 95 minute documentary. Following the viewing, fans cheered, clapped to the music & delivered a standing ovation as the credits rolled.

Following the viewing, guests were treated to delicious, authentic Italian pastries from La Charlotte-Caniglia pastries.
