Celebrity guest stars came to honor and celebrate the big birthday bash and entertained everyone with the “Speakeasy Swingers and Jeanne Brei. It was an epic celebration with roasts and toasts and singing to the one and only Don Hill.

 Don sat proudly on a king’s chair in the middle of the stage and at times he would close his eyes and just take in all the love and beauty of the night.
