The event attendees enjoyed food, drinks and music while sharing their favorite memories of Elaine.
“In my own mind, I think Elaine’s probably here loving every minute of this,” said Elaine’s father Joe Goldberg.
"It's just hundreds of her friends here. This is really impressive, more than I could've hoped for."
