Service League’s gala: Black and white – and out of sight!
A Vanity Fair article written on the 30th anniversary of Truman Capote’s infamous ‘A Night to Remember’ recalled: “If you weren’t invited to Truman Capote’s black-and-white dance in honor of Kay Graham, you simply left town.”
The same could possibly be said for the recent John’s Island Community Service League Gala, An Enchanted Night of Black and White. Unlike the 1966 soiree, though, which was all about power, for the hundreds of guests at the John’s Island celebration, it was all about philanthropy.
The weather was picture perfect as arriving guests gathered for cocktails under the porte-cochère and were greeted by lithesome acrobats pouring champagne, and black and white-clad stilt-walkers, one skillfully playing a violin.
