All That Glitters Gala with 54-40, Canoe Diamond and Penthouse History

Sometimes it’s hard to decide if we’re still in the gala season (end of November) or the start of holiday season (beginning of December). Either way, it really doesn’t matter because with Christmas just around the corner, there’s still so many events to talk about. And whether you’re raising money for your cause or remembering to donate for the season, please remember to give generously. Let’s take a look back at a few great faces from last week.
