                ChristopherSpitzmiller is the Honorary Design Chair. The Design Chairs are VERANDA’s editor in chief Clinton Smith and design editor Carolyn Englefield; interior designers Lindsey Coral Harper, Ashley Whittaker, Mercedes Desio and Alberto Villalobos. Michael Kors is the Fashion Sponsor and VERANDA magazine is the Media Sponsor of the gala.

                    The fashion arrivals and cocktails started about 7, couture gowns and smart tuxedos began to fill the enormous Grand Central ballroom. There was a sophisticated, old-world charm in the air and it was palpable. Visual delights were at every turn (or twist and turn as I like to do)- wonderful colors and vibrant embellishments adorned the tables and guest attire. The mingling finished about 8:30 – dinner, an auction and dancing followed.
