This year’s theme was glamorous black and white, paying tribute to Truman Capote’s legendary 1966 ball.  And the glam factor was off the charts!  Kudos for much in the way of dapper attire and incredibly creative costumes.  This outrageous event benefited The Alpha Workshops Studio School, which provides tuition-free classes in decorative arts and painted finishes for those individuals living with HIV/AIDS.  For a recap of the event click here.  For even more snaps, from Matthew Carasella, click here.
