'Havana Nights' Bash Benefiting Be An Angel Brings Drinks, Dancing and Tropical Vibes

Anna & John Reger

MORE THAN 400 guests poured into The Revaire, dressed in tropical prints and flowing dresses, for Be An Angel's annual gala, which this year adopted a Havana Nights theme.


The evening featured a wine and whiskey pull with more than 200 bottles that were scooped up in the first 30 minutes! Later, an auction with items like getaways to a French villa and Belize contributed to the evening's total till of $600,000.

The Cuarteto Caliente Latin Band performed a spicy ballroom dance, and then Be An Angel's Marti Boone presented the 2023 Angel Awards. Recipients included the late Raymond Solcher and Apollo 7 Astronaut Walter Cunningham.
