The gorgeous group of young professionals that make up the Lee Park Junior Conservancy showed their fundraising prowess for the “Yacht Rock” fall membership party. They didn't need a swanky hotel or dining hot spot. No, this group was perfectly happy getting their party on at the Goff Formal Garden right in the heart of Lee Park.

Guests — including Kirsten Williams, Courtney Edwards, Ryan Sullivan, Chris Cummings, Heather and Brett Anderson, and Kelly Cantu — sipped on specialty Voli vodka cocktails and dined on delicious hors d'oeuvre by Remarkable Affairs. We love a good theme party, especially when it includes sailor hats, stripes, and more blue and white than you can imagine. Those boys from LPJC sure know how to rock a blue blazer.

Techno tunes were traded in for whimsical melodies as pianist Todd Alsup provided the entertainment for the evening. And it wouldn't be a party without the opportunity to enter a drawing and win a luxe prize. The gift up for grabs hit close to home, as two winners won tickets to the group's first-ever New Years Eve party at historic Arlington Hall.

Tickets for this "Evening Among the Stars" are now officially on sale. To attend the New Year's Eve party, one must be a member of Lee Park and Arlington Hall Conservancy.
