Celebrity Gems arranges a Marilyn Monroe impersonator for 70th birthday in San Francisco

He was not the President and he was not celebrating his 45th birthday. There was that decadent multi-layered birthday cake and there was Marilyn Monroe, performing her classic "Happy Birthday Song" for Jerry's 70th birthday in San Rafael. What a fabulous surprise for Jerry, who felt like "the Prez" for his special occasion.

According to his significant other, who planned the party:
"Hello Stan,
Many thanks for the introduction.  The Marilyn impersonator was a delight and she is just lovely and sings well.  Everyone loved her -- Jerry was surprised and thrilled for sure.  I had a photographer there so I will remember to send you a picture.
I talked with her on the phone and worked with her on what to say -- and it worked out well."

Celebrity Gems arranges a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, a Katy Perry impersonator, Elvis, and an Austin Powers impersonator in San Rafael, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, and San Mateo.
