Big smiles, big personalities and big business networking — yes, it’s everyone’s favorite feature in the society shiny sheets: party photos! Boulevard picks through the pics, choosing our favorite coverage.
Our julep cup hasn’t exactly been runneth overing when it comes to the party photo scene — especially for a city whose financial pedigree includes three sin industries: tobacco, booze, and gambling.
But just in the nick of time, along comes our favorite society scribe: Carla Sue Broecker of The Voice-Tribune and her newest Party Line column. This week’s entry and Boulevard’s pick of the pics: the fourth annual Bourbon by the Bridge fundraiser held last weekend. The beneficiary is amazing: CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of the River Region, which serves hundreds of abused and neglected kids every year.
As the fundraiser’s name suggests, there was some bourbon there. Specifically: Angel’s Envy, Barton 1792, Boundary Oak Distillery, Buffalo Trace, Copper & Kings, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jefferson’s, Kentucky Moonshine, Michter’s, Rivulet, Town Branch, Wild Turkey, Willett, Rabbit Hole, and Woodford Reserve (photo, top).
More than 400 guests turned out — including two of the most attractive people to grace a Voice-Tribune photo gallery in, oh, forever: Amy Munno and actor Adam Raque, who each possess bazillion-watt smiles. Flip through the 26 pics, then put on your Jackie O. shades before you hit No. 24. In the meantime, here’s Raque on Instagram:
