WEST PALM BEACH, FL– A gaggle of almost 200 women in little black dresses sashayed into the Gardens Mall for a party benefitting the Center for Creative Education.

The girls’ night out began at Saks Fifth Avenue in the Gardens Mall, where guests were greeted with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by supper-by-the-bite tapas at the mall’s Grand Court and a Saks fashion show.
