ASID Spring Gala. Wow!!

Wow, what a night!! Another fantastic and successful ASID Spring Gala is in the books and dare I say it was the best one yet?!!

It was such a fabulous, sold out evening at the Moakley Courthouse! As people entered the courthouse a massive, freestanding ASID logo and vignette provided by friends at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams greeted them.

After people took photos at the Vignette things really got started with cocktails on the mezzanine overlooking the banquet area and the Boston skyline. (See pic below). The cocktail hour was followed by a sit down dinner and the award presentation.

Celebrity MC and design lover Patti Austin joined us once again as the MC for the evening, and much to everyone’s surprise…including ME!!! Patti asked me to co-MC with her. Talk about an honor! I wish I was better prepared (ugh!) but regardless, it was a fun and exciting moment for me.

All four honorees were presented with awards and one special, secret award was given to my friend and Executive Admin Extraordinaire; Nina Hayes. We barely managed to pull off the big surprise, the look on her face when we called her to the podium was priceless. In addition to all the awards, our charity of choice- Artists for Humanity  was also honored after a silent auction.

The party continued at Empire Lounge after the presentations. Drinks were flowing, music was blaring and everyone was celebrating.

Thank you so much to all of our sponsors, vendors and to everyone that attended. This was our biggest Gala yet and definitely one of the best we’ve had in the past 4 or so years that I’ve had the honor of chairing this fundraiser.  Especially a big THANK YOU to our Gala Planning Committee, this would be impossible without you all. Now we need to get started planning for next year, hope to see you all then!
