Here's what guests at the White Party said about the annual affair for LifeWorks.
"The right people got involved from the start," says Adam Weisberg, owner of Zen Japanese Fast Food. "There's not a bad view from the Long Center Terrace. And the women look phenomenal."
"What's more lovely than people in white?" says Cheryl Bemis of Fashionably Austin online magazine. "Austin loves fashion. Austin love themes. And energy loves energy."
"There are few alternatives to this type of charity event," says John Goeth of Penumbra Services and Edge Boutique. "If other people stepped out and staged such a prominent event for a good cause ... let's put it this way, there should more such events."
"It feels like a hospital or heaven," says Oksana Watson, owner of Angelsword about the several hundred people in white, wandering in and out of equally white cabanas or nibbling at sample tables, draped in white. "They are all nurses or angels."
"It's pretty," says Darcy Borell, a White Party first-timer. "I feel like people are here to be seen and that's good. I hear the food is really great, too."
"I didn't hear about it until today," says stylist Juliana Aguilera. "A lot of people here have a lot of money."
(Note to Juliana: It's all relative. I counted maybe two or three charitable heavy hitters in the crowd. Some of the youngish creative types might be able to give real money some day. Meanwhile, honor the spirit.)
"It's either the end of spring or the beginning of summer," says Rachel Elsberry of Pickie Pie Productions, who helps put the word out about the party.
"You see people you don't see the rest of the season," says Kevin Smothers of Austin Social Planner and AMOA/Arthouse. "Some of the most beautiful people in Austin."
