Flight of Fancy

| June 6, 2016 | Parties National

THE PARTY More than 600 guests flocked to The Geraghty for the first time to fete the ninth annual UNICEF Hope Gala and fifth annual Next Generation After Party. THE PEOPLE Hope Gala co-chairs Kim Rucker and Mark Mitsukawa shined bright among a bevy of luminaries, including Midwest Managing Director of U.S. Funds for UNICEF Casey Marsh and the Ken Arlen Evolution Orchestra, who kept the party rocking with upbeat tunes. THE PINNACLE Under the creative direction of Tom Kehoe of Kehoe Designs, this year’s Imagine theme was brought to life with an urban playground. During the cocktail hour, acrobats from Actors Gymnasium performed mesmerizing tricks while guests bid on over 50 knockout packages. Guests transitioned into The Geraghty’s main space for a three-course dinner by J&L Catering amid an Alice in Wonderland-like garden setting, which later proved the perfect backdrop for a special performance by award-winning singer Vanessa Williams. Talk about saving the best for last! –Photos by Tim Hiatt
