Over $80,000 was raised during the event! Guests dressed in their finest Hollywood and Indian clothing and enjoyed a reception featuring entertainment by local Bollywood Dance Troupe – Agni Dance, a wine and liquor toss, guessing games, photo booth, and silent auction. The live auction featured items such as ACL VIP weekend passes, stays in Costa Rica and Taos, and Food and Wine Festival passes. Special thanks to lead sponsors, Greystone Consulting of Morgan Stanley, Grace Austin Foundation, and Twin Liquors. Pictures taken by Mari DiGiovanni.
