50 + Celebrities and VIPs from Military, Law Enforcement and Entertainment

Salute the Warriors

New York, NY – On Monday, November 17th, FOX News’ Geraldo Rivera emceed a spectacular star-studded evening that supported the Wounded Warrior Project at The Edison Ballroom with about one thousand attendees. Occurring just after Veteran’s Day, the evening included an impressive program that opened with an exciting performance by the Navy Color Guard and NYC Shield Pipe Band. The legendary songstress Dionne Warwick and her granddaughter, Cheyenne Elliott, debuted their latest duet, entitled, “Let There Be Love,” along with performances by acclaimed actor Robert Davi, who galvanized the crowd with classic Frank Sinatra tunes, and The Voice’s Blessing Offor. Next up, Award-winning singer Tomaczek Bednarek performed and captivated the crowd to chant “USA, USA, USA!” There was also a sneak peek at the highly anticipated, soon-to-be released WWII film, “Little Boy,” (Open Road Films).

The program culminated in a special 50th birthday celebration for Emmy-Winning TV and Radio Host Rita Cosby. Geraldo Rivera and John and Margo Catsimatidis sang Happy Birthday to Rita while presenting her with a beautiful cake. The crowd danced the night away to music by DJ Jimmy and the Billy and The Showmen band.

Attendees included the stars from “Little Boy”, including David Henrie and Eduardo Verastegui, as well as philanthropists, John and Margo Catsimatidis and Jean Shafiroff, former NYPD Commissioners, Ray Kelly, Howard Safir and Bernie Kerik, actors Danny Aiello, Paul Sorvino, Stephen Baldwin, Dominic Chianese, Julianne Michelle, Tina Louise, Stacey Dash, Audrey Landers, Michelle DeShon, Stephanie Szostakc, Courtney Hope, Brian Armstrong, Andrew McLaren, FOX News’ Gretchen Carlson, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Bill Hemmer, Ainsley Earhardt, Andrea Tantaros, Lis Wiehl, Cheryl Casone, Heather Childers, Laura Ingle, Gerri Willis and Dee Dee Benkie, Fox 5 NY’s Ernie Anastos and Greg Kelly, Weather gals Janice Dean, Amy Freeze and Janice Huff, TV and radio host, Lynne White, CNN Media host, Brian Stelter, WABC radio hosts Pat Kiernan (NY1 anchor), Curtis Sliwa and Noam Laden, WCBS-TV anchor, Kristine Johnson, NY1 Traffic Reporter, Jamie Stelter and anchor Roma Torre, WPLJ radio host, Ralphie Aversa, celebrity blogger and TV personality, Perez Hilton, top models Cindy Guyer and Jordan Tesfay, Miss New York, Jillian Tapper, former Miss America Kirsten Haglund, recording artist, Stefani Vara, reality television stars Rino and Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, famous mentalist, The Amazing Kreskin, author and noted physician, Ben Carson and Sharon Bush.

More than a hundred members of the media, including many prominent TV news celebrities from all the major networks, were also in attendance for this extraordinary and very high profile evening.

One very special guest that was in attendance is Anna Sharpe. Rita Cosby's and Anna’s respective fathers met in a POW camp in Germany during WWII and became best friends.

They were both rescued by US troops. While writing her bestselling book “Quiet Hero,” Rita reached out to Anna to reunite her father with his long-lost friend. By uncovering their fathers’ past, a friendship between Rita and Anna bloomed. Now Anna is making a special trip to celebrate her dear friend's birthday, as well as celebrate those in service.

The event committee included: Donald Trump, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey, Dennis Miller, Michael Bolton, Karolina Kurkova, Peter Fonda, Julianne Michelle, Vince McMahon, Susan Sarandon, Gary Sinise, Joe Mantegna, Tony Orlando and Joe Theismann.
