The evening began with an exclusive cocktail party where the city’s elite enjoyed a meet and greet with the legendary singer-actress best known for her performance in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. She flowed through the room spending time with every guest, while posing for pictures and signing autographs.

Kazan followed and filled the lounge with her unforgettable voice singing a show full of Broadway and American standards. After the show, the singer met fans and signed copies of her latest CD, donating a portion of sales back to AFAN.
