The meteor that is Shelia Davis flashes brilliantly through our social scene, dazzles judges at dance competitions around the globe and now has caught the eye of merry England’s Prince Charles. Shelia headed across the pond in February for the Prince’s Foundation for Children & The Arts royal gala. (She is a patron of the organization.) “He remembered me from a previous visit,” reports Shelia. “Prince Charles is delightfully engaging, and he told me he would love to learn how to tango.” Go, Shelia. I’m sure you can add some good life to the royal step.
Stand back, guests of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. For the first time ever, there will be three women co-chairs as planning for the 2014 event rolls ahead. And what women they are: Linda Malone, Adria Starkey and Ann McNulty have been forces for good in this community for years, and I’m eager to see what special touches they will bring to next year’s festival. Linda’s the veteran in the group, having a previous run as a co-chair of this renowned fundraiser.
