Founders Junior Council Fash Bash
Because the M1 Rail construction on Woodward Avenue negated the use of the DIA main entrance as the venue for the FJC signature event, Fash Bash was staged at the John R. museum entrance. The alternative site proved once again the truth of the old proverb about necessity being the mother of invention. Many thought the size and configuration of the plaza was even more suitable for partying than the steeply-stepped front entrance and lighting added drama to the after dark, Lincoln Black Label Afterparty. All ticket levels ($500, $250, $175 plus the $95 afterparty) were sold out. The 850-person guest list was a family affair for many, including event co-chairs Elise Hayes, who was with her daughter, mother, sister and niece, and Christine and John Giampetroni who brought their daughter.
Photos for Social Lights events include the HAVENís Promenade of Hope, Healing Waters Dinner Auction, Kadimaís Healthy Body Healthy Mind, Bound Togetherís High Tea, Cinco de Mayo, and the American Diabetes Associationís Unmasked Gala.
