 CEA Gala Dinner, February 29, 2012

On Wednesday, February 29, CEA closed out their week long festival with another spectacular GALA Dinner.  As usual, this was the social event of the year, and the place to see, and be seen.  However, this year CEA seemed to go itself one better with a fantabulous line up of entertainment.
