You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves, but you can sure start some talkin’ with a body painted raffle gal. That’s my Stalin: Freundelian mash up of pith.
Urban Chic’s Revolution, the American Visionary Arts Museum benefit of 2011 made a dent. In this case, the only thing more powerful than two sisters getting together is two sistas getting together. Urban Chic’s Linsday Cannata Buscher and Putting on the Ritz’s Cate Buscher married two sharp brothers years ago . ..over those Thanksgiving table conversations, they have joined to do some serious movin’ and shakin’ in our quirky but lovely Bmore.
Last year’s team won the National Association of Catering Executives Group Award for Event of the Year, so when Cate invited me to be a part of this year’s event as well . . . no hesitation. The girl knows how to raise some serious money for a great cause. Besides, it was a great opportunity for me to hang with some of my favorite artists in the city.
Jean Wade Mayer and Emily Jean of Boutique Events, LLC. Jean and I quickly set upon pretending we will fix foster care and international adoption when we get together. . . she’s a woman that knows how to git’r done.
My partner in crime, Daniel McGarrity . . . who has landed in Hamden (nice!) and taken Bmore by storm with his amazing aesthetic.
All Hail the Queen. 98 Rock’s Sarah Fleischer . . . that girl knows how to get people up and roaring!
Plan it Perfect’s Rachel Hoffberger Shaw with the VIP’s frontman, Tim . . . who rocked the house. And I wish I could show you how amazing Cate Buscher looked . . . but the girl was running at 75 mph all night!
Did ya miss it? It WAS great fun. Raised a ton of money for AVAM . . . keep your ears tuned to more going on at AVAM . . . where irreverent and museum collide to mirth.
