GALLERY: Much-loved Patrizio delights fundraiser crowd

IN front of a large crowd at the sold-out Griffith Regional Theatre international star Patrizio Buanne played his first concert in Griffith on Saturday night, presented by Casella Wines and Roy Spagnolo and Associates.

"For years I've been trying to come to Griffith, and to play as part of a fund- raising event to raise money for the Griffith Private Hospital makes this night extra special for me," the 35-year-old singer songwriter said.

Singing in English, Spanish, German and mostly in Italian, the charming artist had his audience off their seats with excitement, enthusiastically singing and cheering with their idol.

The show raised $150,000 for the Griffith Community Private Hospital.
