Venue: Chesapeake Energy campus.

Honored: Artistic Director Robert Mills.

The evening: Guests began the evening with Champagne and cocktails on the fourth floor of the Chesapeake Modern Building. Dinner was served in the Atrium.

Ambience: Brilliant colors from iridescent panels hung two stories down from the ceiling over the dinner tables, providing soft lighting for the rooms. Colorful tutus, a black swan and her prince in black and gold detail and a selection of costumes reflecting the ballet company's performances further enhanced the decor. Kudos goes to Rand Elliot who created this aura of elegance.
