This year, the 23rd Cabaret Convention, October 17-19 at Jazz at Lincoln Center/Frederick P. Rose Hall, continued the extraordinary levels of entertainment provided by Smith and his compatriots, as well as provided happy, personal memories of the Mercer/Smith coalescence upon which the Foundation plans to thrive in the future.

The premiere Donald F. Smith Award is made possible by the generosity and dedication of Adela and Larry Elow. In Smith's name, they have pledged an annual $5,000.00 grant for the next three years in encouragement of a cabaret artist who embodies the passion, talent, glamour, and dedication to presentation and the Great Popular Songbook beloved and championed by Mr. Smith and exemplified by Ms. Mercer. Similarly, The Noel Coward Award is being offered (for the third consecutive year in 2012) in conjunction with the London-based Noel Coward Foundation, who provide a $5,000.00 grant to a recipient whose outstanding ability and performance flair typify the individual, personal versatility of its namesake.
