An unforgettable evening at the Edison Ballroom Monday night where top stars from every walk of life came out to honor acclaimed TV and Radio Host Rita Cosby for her 50th Birthday.



Legendary songbird Dionne Warwick started the night with a beautiful duet with her granddaughter and rising starlet Cheyenne Elliott, and then sang “Happy Birthday” to Rita Cosby, the first of many inspiring accolades that night.



The star-studded line-up included emcee Geraldo Rivera, Actors Robert Davi (who gave an amazing performance singing Sinatra songs) and Sopranos star Dominic Chianese, singer Blessing Offor from “The Voice” and award-winning singer Tomaczek Bednarek, who got the packed ballroom of one thousand people passionately cheering “USA, USA!”



Actor David Henrie and Actor, Producer and Philanthropist Eduardo Verastegui gave a great sneak peak of their new upcoming film “Little Boy,” about a young boy hoping his father will return safely from WWII.



Cosby wore a stunning and elegant Carmen Marc Valvo gown, and spoke about her POW father Richard Cosby, who was rescued by US troops in 1945.



Event sponsors included the presenting sponsor The John and Margo Catsimatidis Foundation, also ReWalk, Morgan Stanley, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, P.A.V.A., and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics, which had a fabulous booth showcasing its glamorous products on the mezzanine.



The all-star event committee included Donald Trump, Michael Bolton, Vince McMahon, Susan Sarandon, Tony Orlando, Gary Sinese, Natalie Morales and Medal of Honor Recipient Jack Jacobs. The evening ended with the A-list crowd of stars and wounded warriors singing happy birthday to the Emmy-Winning journalist with an enormous patriotic cake by none other than the Cake Boss.
