Last night's Faces of the South Gala, hosted at the Jepson Center for the Arts, was the hallmark event of South magazine's 10th Anniversary Celebration, providing a meaningful opportunity for Publisher, Michael Brooks and his team to recognize all of those friends, clients and readers who have spent the last decade demonstrating support for the publication.  While the cold and wet February weather tried to put a damper on the evening, crowds reaching more than six hundred people came out to commemorate the most influential Southerners of the past ten years. Guests in attendance enjoyed an exceptional array of passed hors d'oeuvres prepared by Savannah Coffee Roasters at the Jepson Cafe along with complimentary cocktails by Savannah Distributing and Coca Cola, before heading to the auditorium for the evening's special presentation presented by Tytan Creates.  After the presentation, guests explored the Jepson's three floors to view additional portraits, covers and video streaming projections by Stage Front Productions and returned to the second floor to indulge in a slice of scrumptious cake baked locally by Wicked Cakes.  All About You Entertainment played a variety of upbeat music throughout the evening and Danielle Hicks gave a special live performance in the Atrium where the beautiful Ginger Fawcett could be found dressed in a special South Magazine Ball Gown Table, created by Bruce Beaird of D.Vine Savannah Weddings and Events. Each person in attendance received a Faces Anniversary tote bag printed by 13 Bricks Clothing, that contained a copy of the commemorative Faces of the South magazine along with a past issue from recent years to take home. The evening would not have been possible without support from our generous contributors, dedicated photographers and the greatest volunteers in the world and Team South thanks you all from the bottom of our hearts for making the 10th Anniversary Faces of the South Gala such a monumental success.  Additional thank yous go to those supporters behind the scenes including, Ranco Tents and Savannah Special Events , Southern Elegance Staffing John Davis Florist, Creative Approach and Security Associates.  Flip through the galleries to get a look at the event in full swing and stay tuned for the South TV video produced by Sean McNally with Cinemobius Films, featuring exclusive red carpet interviews of some of the night's most influential faces.
