Mrs. Barbara Sinatra was surrounded by dear friends for a semi-surprise birthday party at Spencer’s Restaurant hosted by Helene Galen and Jamie Kabler.  The intimate celebration included Bill Nicholson, Donna MacMillan, Michael Childers and Angie and Harvey Gerber.  As an added treat, Mr. Nicholson surprised Mrs. Sinatra with a performance by Luca Ellis, a Frank Sinatra crooner and impersonator, to sing Happy Birthday to Mrs. Sinatra and a few of her favorite Frank songs.  Her friends joined in on the birthday serenade and reveled in the special performance.  Harold Matzner graciously provided champagne to add a sparkle to the evening.
