The New West Symphony’s Poinsettia Supper Club holiday fundraiser was held on Dec. 9 at the Hyatt Regency in Westlake Village. The gala included a cocktail reception, dinner and live auction, with a performance by Grammy Award-winning pop and jazz singer Jack Jones. Ross Porter, former broadcaster for the Los Angeles Dodgers, acted as master of ceremonies for the event, where SAGE Publications was honored for its commitment to education and NWS patron Miriam Chase Wille was recognized for her dedication to supporting the arts in Ventura County. Proceeds from the fundraiser went to the support of the orchestra and its community outreach and education efforts.
