The Women's Association of the Northwest Indiana Symphony Society, or WANISS, held its annual May Wine Brunch, entitled With a Song in my Heart, at the Center for Visual & Performing Arts with more than 300 attendees. The brunch featured a Boulevard of Shoppes, a hat contest, meal, a raffle and entertainment.
Sue Crisman, the president of WANISS, welcomed all as did John Cain, NISO executive director, and Kirk Muspratt, NISO music director/conductor, and each thanked the guests for supporting WANISS. The hat contest was judged by Phil Potempa and had 24 participants. They were judged on vintage/detail, appearance and best design. The winners were Evelyn Lisek, Cheryl Steen and Madeline Wilson.
