The Westport Arts Center's Latin-themed "Viva!" fundraiser at the Westport Country Playhouse April 2 honored three longtime community arts supporters and at the same time brought in revenue to support programs.

During the gala, Joyce Thompson and Cindy and John Vaccaro were cited for their contributions to the arts in Westport.

Guests were entertained by pianist Pablo Ziegler and flautist Nestor Torres, both Latin Grammy Award-winners. They were accompanied on stage by tango dancers Mariela Franganillo, Cristian Correa, Mayte Valdes and Carlos Barrioneuvo.

The arts center said event generated the single-largest source of operating revenue and exceeded its goal.

Officials would not disclose the amount raised. Tickets ranged from $200 to $750.
