"We should have a party!" Once these words left her mouth, Karen Courtney realized she had just
committed herself as host of Donna and Larry Cohen's 70th birthday party
"Great idea!" With this reply Erin Gould realized she just became an instant co-host.
Close to a year later, after roping in their husbands Matthew and Larry, they hosted a casually
elegant wine and cheese party in honor of Donna Gould-Cohen and Larry Cohen turning the big
Donna and Larry were happy when all their close friends from Kansas City came to enjoy their party.
They were overjoyed when all their children flew in to share to fun. Their kids flew in from
California, Boston, Nevada, and even a few displaced by Katrina. It was a full house at Karen and
Larry Courtney's in Overland Park, KS.
Party highlights include:
- The "Best Pinot Ever" that Larry generously shared with everyone quick enough to get a glass before the bottle was finished.
- Erin's homemade mini crab cakes.
- Daphne's beautiful wine glass jewelry.
- Karen's picture centerpiece, with photos of Donna in braids and a Larry looking hunky in his life guarding days.
- Karen's yummy homemade rugalach.
- Seeing Donna and Larry enjoy friends and family on their special day.
Please enjoy the photos of the gala event,

Oh, and don't forget to wish Donna and Larry a Happy 70th Birthday. Remind them both that they do
not look a day over 69!
