The event unfolded into a night of pure musical enchantment. It was a complete package of music, drama and joke with the union between art, music & technology.

The evening started with a very apt tribute to the late Claud D'Souza, by his family members and United Youngsters members. A beautiful video presentation on Claud's musical journey with Wilfy & troupe was displayed through the songs he sang. This show was mainly organized to remember and honour the late Gratian Rebimbus (Babi) on his 100th birth anniversary that took place last year in September. Babi was Wilfy's older brother and in his remembrance Wilfy & Meena had opened an education fund which still helps deserving post graduates for their education every month. The late CGS Taccode and the late Richard Castelino were also fondly remembered.

Roshan Crasta, welcomed the gathering and specially remembered Wilfy's daughter Veena & family who could not be present for the event.
