Guests celebrated “Viva Italia” style Nov. 30 at Michael’s On East for the 16th Annual Designing Women Boutique Gala.
The evening opened with a social hour in the atrium, featuring a meat and cheese table. Afterward, guests were ushered into the ballroom for dinner. The meal was an all-evening affair, with multiple courses, including pastas, chicken and vegetables, cheese and fruit and espresso over ice cream for dessert.
In between courses, guests enjoyed entertainment from Dynasty Dance Clubs. The first dancers to perform were the Dynasty Stars, which is a collaboration between the dance studio and Face Autism. The performance earned a standing ovation and many guests were left with tears in their eyes.
The gala concluded by encouraging guests to hit the dance floor for a fun partner routine, followed by open dancing for the rest of the night.
