As if trekking to the morning meeting on the flooded LA streets wasn’t enough excitement for the day, the resiliency of the PAA members was on display AGAIN on the evening of December 6th for the annual Holiday Party. All love a good party and this one did not disappoint!!
The Velvet-themed event was generously hosted by Denise and Chris Mathews and brilliantly organized by Judy Penner and Sonia Singla. Although a cozy fire in the living room beckoned, members could be seen nattily attired in their velvety ensembles throughout the Mathews’ lovely home. Generous pours of the themed cocktail of the evening (aptly, Cosmopolitans) made the conversations lively, and as many members commented, especially intimate and engaging for a holiday soiree. Hearty hors d’oeuvres were passed, and a delightful buffet selection of nibbles was also on hand.
Word on the streets is that although the invitation indicated that the party would cease at 9:30, some pool sharks lingered on until well past midnight. Not bad for a Thursday night! A good time was had by all, and thanks go especially to Chris and Denise who let the 100 or so hearty revelers (with damp shoes, no less!) into their holiday be-decked home.
