Nights in White Satin!
By Gregory Gunter
Attendees arrived neither Moody nor Blue — all sporting satin, lace, and chiffon — when Casita Linda hosted their Arabian Nights fundraiser last month at Daniel and Lizette’s restaurant b’ui in the heart of Otomi. More than 120 attendees dined on delectable Arabian cuisine while Elsanne’s troupe of belly dancers entertained the crowd and the real estate duo Your Dream Team auctioned off an exotic holiday to Spain and Morocco valued at US$18,000, courtesy of Fernando Favela.
Thanks to hosts Lisa and Laurie, the Amigos del Parque Guadiana kicked off a fund-raising season in style, unveiling landscape architect Martha “F.L. Olmstead” Donnelly’s new design. The new San Miguel Theater Company kicked off their season with Moonlight & Magnolias, directed by Jim Newell, with an after-show opening night reception. As the Moody Blues sang, “…but we decide which is right, and which is an illusion.”
