What: Black Tie Dinner
Where: Hotel Crescent Court
PC Moment: If anyone knows how to host a brunch, it’s Black Tie Dinner. As the largest fundraiser for the LGBT community, it has distributed more than $21 million to various beneficiaries since 1982. Guests did not leave hungry — Hotel Crescent Court provided an omelette station, crab cakes, and chicken and waffles. Guests probably didn’t leave sober either, with Social Ice‘s wine-infused mimosa orange ice pops, and an extravagant bloody mary cart thanks to Absolut Elyx.
The brunch was topped off with a raffle of bowties designed by Jeremy Michael Calhoun, and gift bags complete with Austen Dor pocket squares and custom shirts, Jack Mason wallets, and Orno & Top Knot gift certificates.
