Sure, there was lots of air kissing at the Mistletoe Ball Patron Party on Friday, Sept. 29, at Saks Fifth Avenue, but no one was cheek to cheek under the mistletoe yet. Saks presented the "Evening of Appreciation" for the New College Library Association's 30th annual fundraiser.
Stepping down after two years as the chairwoman of the holiday event, Chris Pfahler was there to welcome in the new chair of the event, Dara Thompson. Guests enjoyed "bellatinis" and bites while models waltzed through the store showcasing the collection from Craig Signer, who happened to be the special guest that evening. This year's Mistletoe Ball is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2, at New College of Florida.
