Chase After a Cure Gala: An Evening in Paris

January 31, 2015

The Party: Guests convened at a Parisian-themed black tie affair at Memminger Auditorium featuring a cocktail hour, live entertainment, catering from local restaurants, and live and silent auctions.

Highlights: American Idol contestant Quiana Parler and the Shiny Disco Ball Band brought down the house with stirring renditions of songs from the past fifty years. The Granary and other local foodie favorites provided tasty hors d’oeuvres while guests bid on auction items that ranged from jewelry to a trip to Disney World.

Overheard: “I am very rare. I ate a two pound lobster from Halls Chophouse when I was nine....and I survived neuroblastoma.” 

Beneficiary: Chase After A Cure, a nonprofit dedicated to children’s cancer research
