You may choose to scroll the society pages and see a list of attendees and who’s who but the people that really made up the front line of proactive contributions probably won’t all be accounted for there. What was accounted for this past evening? Many smiles, healthy conversation, a successful fundraising and a bit of reconnecting with familiar faces of all ages and races. Yes, La Joie de Survivre, surviving is good for not only the art and its historical importance, but the patrons who appreciate the beauty and soul. It was a beautiful evening that brought some of the beautiful people (inside and out) in the hopes of preserving our aesthetic history, with of course the help of Grey Goose Vodka- one of the sponsors who kept the good cheer going, and going. A delightful evening indeed…
