Roper Gala Review

Roper Xavier Society’s Donors Gala was a complete success this past Saturday and we couldn’t be more proud! The event kicked off with cocktail hour in the Grand Hall of the infamous Charleston Place hotel. H’orderves were passed, champagne was served and a great time was had by all! The evening continued with a seated dinner for 800 guests who marveled at the parisian decor. Eiffel towers lit up as centerpieces and majestic colors of linens and drapery filled the room. Entertainment was provided by Adriene Hicks who performed a jazzy and sultry number to Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend from Moulin Rouge. Our honored guest of the evening was the first female Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, who enchanted the ballroom with her witty remarks and extensive knowledge of US affairs.
