If only I could clone myself, yet retain a central brain. Then one of me would be able to attend the International Academy of Design & Technology’s Haute Holiday Gala. As it stands, I’m already booked that night for another (completely worthy) event. But it pains me to miss the evening with internationally renowned fashion designers Cesar Galindo and Traver Rains, who will be on hand at this exhibit of their stunning work. Ambreal Williams of “America’s Next Top Model” fame will co-host. The event, while free to the public, is a benefit for Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California. Organizers say donations of any amount will be appreciated.
It’s all happening Thursday, Dec. 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. on the Natomas campus, at 2450 Del Paso Rd., Suite 250. For more info, call (916) 285-9468. I think you should go, and then tell me all about what I missed.
