Sue Heller, wife of artist/sculptor Yaacov Heller and an artist in her own right, took the cake – literally – at an early birthday party and celebration held at Yaacov’s Gallery 22 in Royal Palm Place, Boca Raton, last month.
Sue called the event “the 41st anniversary of my 29th birthday.” Her actual date of birth is later this month, she said, but the party was held while family was in town, visiting from Israel.
The celebration included music by the Rhythm Chicks and also by Vanessa Simpson. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Special guest Connie Francis, who attended with her entourage, received an award from Coca Cola. Connie was Miss Coca Cola in 1960, and she was honored for having two gold records, one after the other, from tunes on either side of the same 45 rpm disc.
Sue Heller’s cake was created by Jamie Hage from the All Star Gourmet Cupcake Factory in Boca Raton.
