The annual gala benefit was successfully capped of with After Ten, a 4 hour after party that began promptly at 10 PM. After Ten was literally the icing on the cake, no pun intended, as guests arrived for dancing and dessert under the illuminated tent in a garden sanctuary. Those desiring dancing could do so to DJ Tom Finn's music in the main dining area after the elaborate dinner turned into a virtual disco, completed with matte wooden floor. The room's frigid temperature didn't seem to phase the small dancing crowd who didn't seem to tire.
