I put on a suit and hob-nobbed with a pretty fancy crowd. I've gone to this event before (as a celebrity runway walker with a child from Tu Nudito). This time I was a spectator.
I'm reminded when I go that I'm one of the poorest people in the room. One of the things they do each year is a live auction. They auction off fancy vacation packages to things like the Kentucky Derby and the Masters Golf Tournament. A couple of the packages they auctioned off went for over $10,000. A reminder that I'm poor. I tried not to think about it.
I shot video of the fashion show. I'll try to get it edited and posted later today.
In the meantime, here are some photos I shot at the event:
|The theme was Cirque du Couture.|
These were a couple of the acrobats that were performing before the fashion show.
Either that or I was watching some fancy foreplay.
|This girl was suspended from the ceiling on a ring.|
I asked her what she does for a living and she said, "I just hang around".
|The runway for the fashion show and the guests getting seated.|

|Bobby Rich from 94.9 MIX-fm was the master of ceremonies.|
|This is at the end of the fashion show.|
They fired up some confetti to kick off the after party.
Bobby frolicks in the floating paper.
|I clean up pretty well.|
