That was such a special event for us; totally heart warming to be in receipt of such goodwill and support. It makes it all so worth while. A special thanks to Pauline, Cake Mistress Extraordinaire. Michele and Biagio for all their work behind the scenes. And to Biagio and Oscar for their impromptu and spirited live performance. Last but not least to you all - from old timers to the newer faces, for making such a great Tango scene possible. Thank you
