I don't know who put the money up, Arthur, but a bunch of couples graduating from my high school in June 1955 received tickets to see Tony Bennett live at the Copacabana as our senior prom graduation gift. My date and I were given a table behind a pillar toward the back of the room, but it was the most electrifying performance we ever had seen or heard.

An interesting story and you probably remember it as vividly "as if it were yesterday."
