Our previously scheduled emcee, Carolyn Hennesy, will not be able to host our event this Friday, April 12 at the Marriott Hotel in Fremont.
We are very excited to announce that Faith Alpher will be our new Master of Ceremonies. Faith is an actress, stand-up comedienne, and local radio show host whose career began as one of the original Jell-O Pudding kids! We are pleased and honored that she has offered to step in on such short notice and know that she will be a wonderful addition to our event. (You can check out a sampling of her stand-up comedy in the YouTube clip below!)
We are really looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday.

About Faith Alpher:
Faith Alpher is a quiet storm. Poised and confident, her body language says “all powerful,” but her eyes emit a kindness that makes audiences want to spend the rest of their lives with her. The reason is no doubt the unique connection between her classically trained actor’s voice and her improvisational comedic timing.
Whether she’s speaking to a live audience, acting on stage, hosting a radio show or working as a voice over artist, Ms. Alpher’s “thunderous whispers” take her audiences on an emotional, cathartic ride and leave them begging for more. Ms. Alpher discovered her unique acting skills in childhood, starring alongside the incomparable Bill Cosby as one of the first Jell-O pudding kids.
A host of tv commercials followed, with Ms. Alpher pitching everything from Dr. Pepper to Tide. As a teenager she spent years in front of the camera, working on a host of After School Specials and sharing the screen with A-listers like Sally Field, Richard Pryor, Robert DeNiro, and Barbra Streisand to name a few.
Some of Ms. Alpher’s most recent appearances include the OWN network, where she was featured on the series “Searching For.” She was also a participant in the “Your OWN Show” search and had a major role in the award-winning Shakespeare Santa Cruz’s production of Othello. Ms. Alpher is also radio host for a local station, broadcasting to an estimated 300,000 listeners, and has made several appearances as a stand-up comedienne. She will be the featured host and Mistress of Ceremonies at the Livermore Valley Opera 20th Aniversary Celebration, showcasing some of the most talented Divas and Divos in the opera community. Ms. Alpher is a member of the prestigious Screen Actors’ Guild and divides her time between the New York and San Francisco Bay areas.
