If I may say so myself, I was looking rather swank, dressed in a black velvet dinner jacket, red shirt and red ascot. It had a retro Hugh Hefner Playboy mansion feel to it.

The main tent had the stage and tables, the side tent had all of the food.
Each table had beautiful floral centerpieces, with several dozen pink roses surrounded by white hydrangea.
Friends Vince, Julia, Jason and Jim share a moment after the spectacular performance by Miss Hudson.
It was a fun evening-with lots of shmoozing and laughs. I can't help but wonder what the late Regina Fong would have said if she saw Jennifer Hudson perform the big "And I am Tell You I'm Not Going". During the old days in London, one of the guest acts in her show was by "The Skinny Bitch" who would do a knock down rendition of "And I am Tell You I'm Not Going", and would bring the house down. I miss Regina Fong and her Fongettes. RIP.
