Westco Gala Gives Chester His Da, 28 Oct 2007 [cached]
Chester Day -- the Westco Honoree with Bill Zorn, Rick Dougherty and George Grove of America's Trio -- the Kingston Trio at the after-show party at Il Sorriso Ristorante in Irvington.
The occasion was Westco Productions - the 28 years running local theatre innovators' -- annual Gala honoring Westchester's "Quiet Icon," Chester Day, the President and Treasurer of one of America's most inspiring cemetaries, Kensico. Day, a major supporter of Westco over its 28 years, was described as a model for a successful businessman, and a man who goes about doing good and giving back, in the words of Westco Productions Board President, Steven Sledzik.
Steven Sledzik, President of the Board of Directors left, and Susan Katz, right, "First Lady of Westchester Theatre," founder of Westco Productions listen as Mr. Day accepts his "Westie"
Mr. Day in accepting the award was very self-deprecating, as is his style, and praised Westco Productions performances for ailing children, its Healing Walls program and educational original performances of historical plays in the county's schools, and community theatre groups for the underprivileged and the disabled. Mr. Day himself is a member of the Westchester County Association and the Westchester Business Council. He is President of the Metropolitan Cemetary Association.
The Trio came to party because they are Chester Day's favorite group and the obvious, "can do no wrong" favorite of the expectant crowd of clapping, eager aficionados of the Trio classics - from " Scotch and Soda" to "Tom Dooley" to the always timely, "MTA."
The Trio introduced Mr. Day to the packed house. Mr.Dougherty sung an ode to Mr.Day, based on the Beatles' Yesterday, which began "Chester Day, came to see the Kingston Trio play...." a memorable musical recognition.
Afterwards the Trio hung out and stayed at at the after party at Il Sorriso Ristorante Italiano where Mr. Day, the Westco Honoree of the night was feted for his support of Westco.
