Starry, Starry Night

| November 28, 2014 | Parties National

All that twinkles, glitters and sparkles filled the sky above the 350 luminaries in attendance at I Padrini di Antonello’s An Evening Under the Stars. Now in its ninth year, the beloved affair is always held in the alfresco courtyard at Antonello Ristorante and supports Seneca O.C. and the Speech and Language Development Center. Luxe auction prizes—such as a private wine tour of Napa and a Tahoe vacay—dazzled. And a gourmet meal of short ribs paired with delectable vinos delighted. Between bites, Antonio and Fiorella Cagnolo, and event co-chairs Erin Lastinger and Windell Stout raised a toast to center co-founder Gladys Gleason, who was recognized for her philanthropic efforts. The night ended with moonlit dancing and a fundraising total of $130,000, allowing the two nonprofits to continue brightening the lives of children for years to come. -Photos by Carla Rhea
