Last weekend, Gail Westerfield celebrated her 50th birthday with a big bash in her backyard complete with a chocolate fountain, champagne, high-heel shaped cupcakes, and a fire eating belly dancer. The festivities lasted late into the night, and all who attended had a blast. Special thanks to Maggy Nordon, Erika Pyle, Allison Stice and Joellen Hirschey for their party planning skills. Gail was recently voted “Favorite Friend” in The Island News’ Favorites awards. She is an accomplished actress, writer, editor and is currently directing “A Piece of My Heart” which will debut at USCB Center for the Arts this weekend.
