“I love singing with the choir throughout the year, especially for our Cabaret – it’s a chance to feature our singers’ vocal talents individually”, said, President Nicole Pepe. “The tricky tray and 50/50 gets bigger and bigger every year. We’ve had guests leave with $1,000+ in their pockets and vacations to Florida, the Hamptons, and even tickets to a Knicks game!”
