The Highlights

A polished crowd gathered for an elegant luncheon and show of cruise and spring 2012 couture collections, including pieces by our very own Wes Gordon. Patrons were also inspired by honoree guest speaker Octavia Ferguson, an accomplished scholar, whose education was made possible through a Nsoro scholarship. The luncheon was a pre-celebration for Nsoro’s annual, Mardi-Gras-themed Starfish Gala, which will be held Jan. 7, 2012 at The St. Regis Buckhead.

The Scene-Makers

Among the crowd: Harrison Rohr, Dennis Boyden, Marjorie Harvey, Jim Williamson, Rebecca Bily, Tara Werther, Steve Smith, Todd Tautfest, Susan Tucker, Diff Ritchie

The Cause
