White after Labor Day? Local opera stars? Bouncy castles at the country club?

Has society gone mad?

It was a night of Parisian revelry during Nuit Blanche Saint Antoine held on the grounds of the Landa Branch Library and benefitting the San Antonio Public Library Foundation. Co-chairwomen Carol Lavender and Susan Brothers hosted this casual chic, vintage French-themed event featuring Steven Lee Moya spinning tunes a la Française mixed with dance beats.

Caricature artists captured guests’ best expressions and a “white haute” raffle and silent auction sparked some friendly competition all night.

San Antonio native David Portillo brought high culture to the Alamo City with a one-of-a-kind event presented by YouthCUE to benefit San Antonio’s Morningside Ministries Senior Living Communities. Portillo, a tenor with the Metropolitan Opera in New York,  captivated the crowd during an enchanted evening of music including 200 local student singers.

After all that highbrow fun, the parking lot at the San Antonio Country Club was transformed into a playground for moms and their boys to compete in field-day activities and have a blast during “Jump & Jive,” a mother/son night of fun, dinner and a break-dance party.

All proceeds from this exciting event benefitted the Believe It Foundation.
