2008 Divas & Diamonds

Congratulations to all of our honorees. We recognize these dynamic women for their contributions to the Florida Grand Opera, and our community. It is truly a privilege to have served as Chair of the Divas and Diamonds luncheon, and to work with so many vibrant women.

Many months of preparation went into this event. I stand in awe of our hard-working chairs, who are by far the most self-motivating and resourceful women I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for the time and effort you have put into this undertaking.

Special thanks to Barbara Lefka for steering the Divas and Diamonds Luncheon. She is responsible for coming up with the “Divas & Diamonds” concept and has put in hours upon hours of time toward the success of this event. She is truly an amazing woman with boundless energy! Here’s to you, Barbara!

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Opera Society and the Florida Grand Opera, I want to say “thank you” to the journal advertisers, underwriters, hostesses, liaisons and all of the supporters for their commitment and generous contributions. They have truly made a difference for our Young Artists.
