Letter: Sinatra night a success

To the editor:

I wanted to thank the BellaMia restaurant in downtown Beverly, and owner Michael LaVita and his staff, for hosting a delightful evening of Frank Sinatra songs on Oct. 17. The sold-out show was a smash success, as the attendees were dressed to the nines as they danced and listened to “Sinatra” as performed by the stylings of Michael Dutra (

The staff and hospitality at BellaMia’s couldn’t have been better. We not only enjoyed songs of Sinatra, but were treated to a delicious three-course meal.

Proceeds from the evening will help fund two projects. One being Eleanore’s Project (, a program that operates a wheelchair clinic in Peru with additional training for caregivers. The other is the award-winning Beverly High School music department.

The Beverly Rotary Club is proud to support these organizations and the great work and music they provide. Plus, a special thanks again to BellaMia for hosting this one-night-only event.
