Sumptuous floral arrangements by David Kurio filled the expertly decorated space, which included a lavish lounge assembled  by the team from Townsley Designs. Dinner came courtesy of Levy Restaurants and was just the fuel the crowd needed to move into the casino and dance party phase of the evening.
