Last year, I was able to listen to lively tunes and bid on restaurant adventures at The Four Seasons, David Burke’s, Le Colonial and The Cape Cod Room.

Attendees enjoyed mini pulled pork sandwiches from Lillie’s Q and had some savory snacks from The Purple Pig. There wered cupcakes from Foiled Cupcakes.

Grey Goose was pouring some yummy martinis. I loved the fashion show with plenty of bright pink, fur and sequins.
