Tony Petrello and the wife, Cynthia recently hosted a lavish banquet in honor of Broadway star, Tommy Tune. The invite-only cocktail affair was held at Tony’s Houston mansion on Shadyside estate.
The Petrellos, renowned for their multi-million investments in the ever-lucrative oil industry, sent out invites to 50 of their closest friends, business partners and celebrities. Tommy has enjoyed a long and superb Broadway career defined by more hits than probably all his closest rival performers combined. Mr. Tune cemented his place in the Broadway hall of fame with memorable stage appearances on award-winning shows like, A Day in Hollywood, My One and Only, Seesaw, Nine, A Night in Ukraine, The Will Rodgers Follies, and on the Grand Hotel.
The cocktail party at Shadyside manor was just a teaser of the bigger concert dubbed Tommy Tune Tonight. That concert drew in a mammoth crowd of 5K as almost everyone in Houston, TX knows of the brilliance of Mr. Tune. The six-foot plus tall legend is an old boy of the local, Lamar High School and he’s perfected his music and moves by working in NY with yet another Broadway hall of famer, Patsy Swayze.
Tommy felt right at home at the lavish lawns of the couple’s breathtaking million dollar property as he was pictured feeding the bunnies while casually strolling under the excellent fall weather. The revelers got a special musical treat courtesy of the soothing piano music by Scott Graham as they feasted on the sumptuous cuisine on offer.
Mr. Petrello reigns as the CEO of an established oil conglomerate called Narbors Industries and those who know and interact with the entrepreneur regard him as a passionate philanthropist. For ages, the Petrellos have pledged their unwavering support for many charity courses in their home state, Houston and beyond. As of 2018, the benevolent couple had doled out in excess of 8 million dollars to fund cutting-edge medical scientific research.
The duos decision to fund medical advances was solely inspired by the positive periventricular leukomalacia diagnosis on their newborn daughter. The adverse medical condition effectively cuts out the brain’s blood supply, and if left untreated, is often fatal. Carena, the daughter, had to undergo close to a dozen operations as doctors tried to heal the debilitating condition to restore her normal life. The millions in donations were to speed up the race for the cure to periventricular leukomalacia. The couple didn’t want other parents with kids suffering from the condition to have to bear the emotional, psychological and financial burden they’d done through. Today, most of the charity work by the Tony Petrello and the wife is orchestrated via the Petrello Family Foundation.
