The Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra hosted the third annual Denim and Diamonds on April 2 at Greensburg Country Club.

A $1,700 bottle of wine, a safari in South Africa and a vacation in Vail, Colo., were some of the items up for live and silent auction. Guests mingled at food and dessert stations, and danced to Gary Racan and the Studio E Band.

The auction items were luxurious, and the live music was fun, said Linda Assard, co-chair with Von DeRiso and William Friedlander, but Denim and Diamonds has a serious purpose.

“The true heart of this event is raising funds to support classical music and music education in our community,” she said.

Chris Horner (with Stu) and Nancy Jamison were recognized for their support. They’ve been volunteers since the first symphony fundraiser was held 32 years ago.
