High-profile television executives including Ted Harbert (Chairman, NBC Broadcasting) mingled with celebs like Harry Connick Jr. over passed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in The Villa’s Mosaic Garden, while other guests got creative in the green screen photo booth. An energetic performance by Ne-Yo had the crowd going wild and the ladies swooning as he performed major hits including “Sexy Love,” “Let Me Love You,” and “Time of Our Lives.
