Last Thursday I had the privilege of attending the Dress For Success Gala at The City Club.  The mission of Dress For Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life, and the gala supports the organization by donating proceeds from the evenings ticket sales and silent auction.

The view from the 11th Floor.

Amazing female chefs came out from Fifth Floor, The Restaurant at Wente, Barbacco, Carneros Bistro, Gitane, and E & O Trading Company and showcased their goods. Champagne was flowing from Domaine Carneros, La Crema was pouring vino, and Ketel One was shakin’ up martinis for guests. Following the reception was the ceremony and auction, complete with a fashion show. Unfortunately I did not stay for the show, but I did get a chance to take a lot of foodie photos! Enjoy.
