Opus Vi: Party Different to benefit the Allied Arts was just that…a fun, enthusiastic type of party with food tables, designer drinks and shopping at the “pARTy shop.”

The Pink Flamingos played non-stop for dancing the entire evening and people just had a great time. The event was at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club.

Lori and Bond Payne and Teresa Rose and James Pickel were co-chairmen. The program listed Dancing, Dining, Cocktails, Shopping, all from 7 until 11 p.m.   The party planners also listed Program, none, and Live Auction, none.

Guests shopped for  art including paintings by Beat D. Seabourn, Glenna Goodacre, Desmond Mason, Suzanne Wallace Mears, Ginger Myers, Joy Richardson, Suzanne Peck, Ryan Cunningham, Ben Harjo, W. Bennett Berry and Elisa Cosssey.

Committee members were Steve Boyd, Debbie Forshee, Diane Foster, Kay Goebel, Daniel Gordon, Linda and Ken Howell, Ann Johnstone, Jenny and David Kallenberger, Julia Kirt, Louisa McCune-Elmore, Lindsay McIntyre, Debbie Nauser, Camilla Ostrowe, Charlotte Richels, Sarah Sears, Rachel Shortt, Angie Simons, Jeff Stokes, Clint Stone, Jeff Thompson, Lori Tyler, Genea Vallion and Jim Vallion.
