The Grand Rapids Art Museum’s Centennial Gala Saturday was an outstanding event!  The event raised over a million dollars for the museum and was the kick-off event to the much-anticipated Princess Diana exhibition.  The gala started at the JW Marriott with dinner and a program and then guests were shuttled over to the museum for dessert and a sneak peek at the exhibition.  Close to 700 people attended.  It certainly was the event of the season!  I couldn’t resist bringing my camera and taking pictures of several of the beautiful gowns that were purchased at Leigh’s.  I wish I could have had a chance to take pictures of everyone wearing a gown from Leigh’s, but the night just flew by!  Please feel free to forward me pictures that you took and I will gladly post them (  I also need to take a moment to thank my alterations team for making sure all of our customers were delighted with a perfectly fitted gown.  Our alterations team worked extra hours and did last-minute alts – up until 5:30pm the night of the event!!  You ladies are amazing – thank you!!
