NOTE:Overall the event was upscale and classy. There were a few folk not dressed up, but overall everyone got the memo. The newly constructed venue looked pretty much the same. The only difference were the venue's aesthetics: white drapings, party lights, etc. This venue will be Boone's new spot for his upscale events which is perfect for any occasion. Lance Gross was very nice and cool and was very engaging toward his female fans who were eagarly awating to take pics and and meet him.
Also spotted there were model Shanell Howard, Socialite Sande (Stevenson), former KSDK personality Tim Lampley, Freetime's Daryl Frierson, promoter Maurice Hamilton, fitness trainer Marlon Lee, socialites Sarah Bryant, Derrick Hibbler, Miss Dionne, Jamie Spencer and Montina Mullen (sporting a new blonde do).
