Palm Beach, FL — On March 23, 2015, in the Royal Room of The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Lois Pope treated close to 100 friends and supporters of LIFE to an Epic Evening as a special “thank you” to all who supported LIFE throughout the season.
Star of stage and screen, Robert Davi, serenaded the crowd with the hits of Frank Sinatra in what was a spectacular performance. LIFE’s long-time board member and entertainment chairwoman, Sunny Sessa, introduced and presented Robert Davi for this private concert.
Guests began the evening with cocktails by the pool, followed by a three-course dinner before Lois Pope, Dr. Robert Mackler, and Jan and Chip Malley lead a sing-a-long with guests to the tune of “The Way You Look Tonight” and “It’s De-Lovely.”
Robert Davi, the featured performer, is an award-winning actor, screenwriter, director, producer and jazz vocalist. From his portrayal of the opera singing baddie in “The Goonies” and one of the most popular James Bond villains Franz Sanchez in “Licence to Kill” to FBI Special Agent Big Johnson in” Die Hard” or Al Torres in “Showgirls” to most recently Leo Marks in “The Iceman ” Robert Davi is one of the film industry’s most recognized tough guys. He has also starred in the small screen in hit shows like Profiler, Stargate Atlantis, Criminal Minds and CSI. Robert Davi is also one of the top vocalists of our day in interpreting the Great American Songbook. His debut album Davi Sings Sinatra- On the Road to Romance produced by Phil Ramone shot to number six for more than several weeks on Billboard’s Jazz Charts.
