Energetic music, artwork and fashion helped set the stage for an evening of philanthropy and fun at the sixth annual Pink Party presented by the Sam Khoury Foundation and Starbucks benefiting Susan G. Komen. Inside the Room on Main were cabana-like VIP lounges flanked by multiple bar setups to serve hundreds of partygoers.

Attendees — including Rebecca Passion, Rachel Bennett, Kelsi Uechtritz, Sally Evans, Joy Williams, Pamela Chao and Jaimie Braziel — enjoyed sips by Absolut Vodka, Community Beer Company, Smart Water and Diet Coke, plus bites courtesy of CN Catering and the Popcorn Market. But the entertainment is what made this evening unforgettable.

While supporters perused artwork on display, they were also treated to a one-of-a-kind art-in-progress with piano accompaniment. Euforia featuring the artistic vision of Rolando Diaz and the musical musings of Seth Simmons created a 30-by-40-inch piece that was auctioned off after its creation, and all proceeds benefited Susan G. Komen.

In addition to Diaz’s original artwork, attendees bid on a variety of items at the silent auction, including an Absolut gift basket and VIP ticket packages from Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie.

As if that weren’t enough to keep everyone engaged, there was also an impressive fashion presentation featuring looks from Dallas designers Abi Ferrin and Prashi Shah. Models took to the runway alongside strong and inspiring breast cancer survivors in an unforgettable show.

Guests did not leave empty-handed. Swag bags contained gift cards from Starbucks, refreshments from Diet Coke and styling products from BedHead.
