The red carpet was out on the evening of June 25, 2015 as guests approached the new Quail West home of Tina and Jack Nicholson to celebrate the 90th birthday of Myra Janco Daniels.
Myra, radiant in her black Valentino gown, greeted close to 100 friends, colleagues past and present and local dignitaries, including Mayor John Sorey and his wife, Dolores.
During the evening Sheriff Kevin Rambosk presented Myra with the CCSO Community Star Award, the first recipient of this new community honor.
Seated at tables covered in purple and bedecked with spectacular gold and crystal centerpieces, guests were treated to a sumptuous buffet of some of Myra’s favorite Persian foods, all prepared by the hostess.
Throughout the evening Ruben Celiberty and Steven Banyea, recently returned from a concert tour of Italy, entertained with piano music and lyrics.
Myra emotionally spoke of her amazing life from Gary, Indiana to Naples, Florida and her many routes and experiences along the way.
The highlight of the evening occurred when William Knoll led an enthusiastic crowd with a rendition of Happy Birthday as Myra blew out the candles on her cake.
