On February 23rd, The Atlantan and distinguished guests gathered at the Hotel at Avalon to celebrate the release of 2018 Charity and Social Datebook. The hotel’s gorgeous event space transformed into a black tie affair with the help of Bold Catering and Design by Brian Worley, Utopian Events, Elegant Chairs and Linens, and Collection Event Rentals. The menu, which included soulful bites, champagne sips, and mint juleps, paid homage to the southern hospitality and generosity that permeates Atlanta’s social scene. Bentley Atlanta stole the show as the evening’s official auto sponsor, and SALT models, styled by Steve Hightower Salon and Day Spa, modeled dazzling designs courtesy of the night’s fashion sponsor, Elite Pour La Vie. The issue’s guest editor, Dr. Lisa Hasty, welcomed guests and honored each of the issue’s social spotlights. One lucky winner received 2 complimentary sessions of Coolsculpting, courtesy of Emory Aesthetic Center. After the heartwarming award ceremony, guests danced well into the night with tunes from Y’vonne Monet.
