Women on The Rise Fundraising Gala, May 2011

A Serving Skirt lady greets guests and offers them wine, mints, or an uplifting quote. She later helps to guide the guests down to the ballroom.

At the entrance of the ballroom the stilt walker is fanning rose petals onto guests as they enter… making them feel like royalty.
