Successful season send-off
More than 600 guests gathered under tent for the ever-spectacular culmination of Vero Beach’s social season. May Pops, the most lavish and anticipated outdoor party of the year took place May 7 on Windsor’s polo field for its 28th season send-off. Thanks to Presenting Sponsors Helen Post and The Plansoen Foundation, this time-honored tradition was noted by many as “The best ever!”
Thank to our generous sponsors, IRMC Foundation proudly hosted the Brevard Symphony Orchestra to Vero for a late afternoon concert al fresco. Under the baton of Music Director Christopher Confessore, the orchestra delighted the audience with beloved Broadway musical hits performed by renowned vocalists, Rachel York and Ryan Silverman.
Beloved May Pops event coordinator and Foundation team member Nancy Ross served as Guest Conductor when the orchestra played The Stars and Stripes Forever. The crowd was on its feet during this traditional performance, waving flags, singing and saluting.
Again this year, bow ties were in abundance in honor of the late Dick Post. For the first 24 years of May Pops, Dick joined his wife Helen as presenting sponsor. Remembering his great passion for this event, a new May Pops tradition was born in 2014 with sponsors, guests, orchestra members, Chef Joe Faria and the Quail Valley catering staff sporting Dick’s signature bow tie.
Thanks to all who supported this fabulous season finale. Proceeds will help to advance technology, enhance facilities, and elevate patient care at IRMC, benefitting all who need the medical center’s services.
