Event Rewind: CPL’s 25th Anniversary Gala

During CPL’s 25th Anniversary Gala on Saturday, April 11, over 180 guests had a fabulous time celebrating CPL’s silver anniversary at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library. At 6 pm, shuttles of sponsors traversed Winterthur Museum’s gorgeous grounds to arrive at the Museum. Party-goers enjoyed wag-worthy bites and cocktails and were serenaded by two talented graduate teams.

The main event unfolded at 7 pm at the Visitor’s Center. Restaurant Associates prepared a fabulous three-course dinner, while the irresistible sounds of the Jim Levendis Orchestra kept boogying bodies on the dance floor all night. 

Traveling from table to table, Wacky Wendy snipped and clipped colorful paper plates into elaborate hat sculptures in mere minutes. Choosing from adorable to out of this world, guests (including the four-legged ones) soon starting sporting hats adorned with stars and stripes, Viking horns, Lady Liberty’s crown, aliens, and of course, dogs of all varieties.
