Spirit Of Love 2012 Highlights

In 2012, we set our theme, "Touching Hearts... Inspiring Lives" to focus on how Laura touched us as individuals, and how her life and music continue to inspire people to this day.

Again this year, we celebrated the collaboration that resulted in the release Shine On: The Ultimate Collection, the groundbreaking CD+DVD project from WEA/Gallo Records and Other Half Entertainment. During our Friday evening beach ceremony, we strolled on some of the same sands that inspired Laura in years past, mentioned some specific ways in which Laura touched us during our Saturday evening candlelight ceremony, and during our "fan forum" with Tommy Bayiokos and Kathy Golik, we heard more of how we can take our inspirations and help share them with new and old fans everywhere.

For our Sunday outing this year, we started in Westhampton Beach, with our now famous stop at Westhampton T-Shirts, among other sites in the town. On our way to Sag Harbor, we drove through East Quogue (with a drive by Laura's home), stopped at Duck Walk Vineyards in Southampton, and finished up in Sag Harbor, taking in the American Beauty II's Sag Harbor cruise (a great harbor tour to take anytime!).

Participants also received a commemorative Spirit Of Love umbrella.

Our program this year included a special note from Touch producer David Kershenbaum, as well as a special annual message from Tommy Bayiokos, Laura's percussionist and special friend, as well as thoughts from Kathy and Vince, and the schedule of activities that took place during this year's event.
