As the temperature began to climb into the triple digits, members of San Antonio’s society set remained as cool as cucumbers (in haute couture, of course) while throwing some of the hottest parties around.
Members of the Gardenia & Musical Club celebrated with a delightful dinner to honor newly crowned Queen Ashton Leigh McDaniel and her court, including duchesses Savannah Brown and Kendall Batchelor.
The coronation took place at the historic Argyle in Alamo Heights.
The newest floral sovereign will reign during Fiesta 2019, taking part in public appearances and during the Texas Cavaliers River Parade.
At the McNay Glow Gala, guests played it cool in the museum after dark during a neon evening of interactive light, sound and taste inspired by the new exhibit, “Immersed: Local to Global Art Sensations.”
The black-lit evening was highlighted with amazing performances by glow-in-the-dark aerialists and LED dancers, neon photos, flash tattoos, custom cocktails, light bites, exciting raffle prizes and a pair of hot dance floors.
Meanwhile, exciting casino games, unlimited food, music, a live and silent auction, gaming prizes and $1,000 in gaming chips per ticket started the fun at Agapefest Denim and Diamonds Casino Night benefiting ACTS Ministries, or adoration, community, theology and service.
Cool cowboys, cowgirls and croupiers bet on a sizzling night of fun and games, and everyone came out a winner.
