Well, after lots of hard work planning and organizing, the SAG 75th Party finally happened this weekend. I had a Blast (pun intended). Sold out with 500 people! We had a great group of volunteers for this event. What an upbeat positive bunch. Steve Auger found the Ritz for the event. Bill Mootos, Julie Wood and Dona Sommer did most of the overall organizing. The rest of us pitched in with various duties such as PR, mailings, designing the invitations, writing the Blasts, checking people in, setting up the decorations, the music, the photo montages. Anyway it went well. I felt like I was on the prom planning committee (no I wasn't that kid in school, I didn't go to my prom).
Don't you love seeing everyone in their most glamorous garments? No muted tones Saturday night.
There was a big, crowded, noisy room with the band and a smaller quiet room for those who wanted to sit or stand and chat. Guess where I spent most of the evening?
It was wonderful to see Seba Johnson there after that horrible accident. She certainly is on the mend and looking gorgeous again.
It was grand munching on hors d'oeuvres, treating myself to a fancy cosmopolitan (which matched my gown) and chatting with tons of friends. Have a many of you made tons of new friends/acquaintances with the film boom? I love it. I also enjoyed any evening with mostly actors, no pressure of producers, directors, casting, etc.
I hope we have another SAG party soon. Maybe a casual party to open the Conservatory next year? Who knows?
I'd love to hear other people's thoughts on their experience at the SAG 75th, either from Boston or across the country since I believe most chapters celebrated this past weekend.
