The Adult & Senior Center of Saratoga’s fifth annual Music & Mingling event on May 28 at the Saratoga Polo Field kicked off the summer season in style. From a sushi and sake tasting from Sushi Yoshi and Zipang, tarot card readings from Mary Shimp, cigar tastings from James & Sons Tobacconists, dance music from Grand Central Station and catering from the Old Daley Inn, it was a tasty affair.

Equine artist Frankie Flores put finishing touches on his painting of American Pharaoh, who went on to win the Triple Crown just days later. Retired racing announcer Tom Durkin emceed the live auction, which began with “Call to the Post” by Tony Gambaro on trumpet.

Overall, $90,000 was raised for the Senior Center, which provides services, social events and trips for seniors and adults over 50. Vincent and Patty Riggi were honorary chairs. Major sponsors also included Turbine Services, Ltd.; Ron and Michele Riggi; and Prestwick Chase of Saratoga.
