If you weren’t able to attend the first annual Don Davis Legacy Foundation Awards and Tribute Gala event earlier this month you missed a wonderful night of giving and giving back.  On what was the perfect sunny day that lead to a beautiful fall night; with warm temperatures that paralleled a truly “Haute” show. The celebrities, honored guests, and patrons were treated to a star-studded red carpet pre-mixer with hosts and presenters Vivica Fox and Laz Alonzo as they walked the red carpet for interviews.  Kiko Davis and children Skye and Donnie Jr. made a grand entrance meeting and greeting the many attendees along the way.
