Grit and Glamour 2011

On this past Saturday I attended the Grit and Glamour Gala at the Columbia Museum of Art. It really was an amazing event with performances by the Unbound Dance Company, as well as The Swingin’ Richards, and MaryLiz the Princess. The museum was divided into different sections like the Piano Bar, the Hemp Bar, as well as the Coffee Bar. The largest space was in the expansion area of the museum where Izms of Art had painted the walls in graffiti. There were markers for us to add to the work but I, as always, couldn’t bring myself to do it.
All and all it was a great event benefiting a great cause. There was enough food to probably feed twice as much as we actually ate and there would be no way for me to even guess how many attendees there were. Of course there were a few familiar faces like the women of VanJean and Just The Thing, as well as The Shop Tart(who you can thank for the picture of me), and Otis Taylor of The State. Cori Hanky of Garnet and Black accompanied me and so when we get them back most of the images will be from her.

EVENT: CCCR Gala at Coplon’s

On this past Saturday I attended the Center for Colon Cancer Research Gala that was apart of the Unmasking Colon Cancer campaign at Coplon’s. The 5th Annual Gala, the event featured New York designer Carmen Marc Valvo. While present I did see Anne Postic of The Shop Tart as well as Ebony Looney of Make Me Over Eb and local stylist Brian Maynor. The event was beautifully executed with catering by Duvall Catering and planning and execution by Celebrations. I’d like to say thanks to Meredith of Red Horse Publicity for all of her assistance as well as Cori Hanky of Garnet and Black Magazine for coming with me and taking pictures.

I did take a video but the quality wasn’t so good, The Shop Tart did manage to get Carmen’s finale speech though.
