Phipps Plaza’s beloved Italian eatery, Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, celebrated its 5-year anniversary with a room of more than 150 attendees, including local celebrities, chefs and friends and family of the restaurant.
In addition to wishing the restaurant a happy birthday, the event—hosted by Simply Buckhead— helped raise $3,700 for Bert’s Big Adventure, a nonprofit that provides an all-expenses-paid, five-day trip to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Guests enjoyed cocktail specials, complimentary appetizers and tunes by DJ Willie T (Tommy Owen of the Bert Show) in the restaurant’s upscale ambiance. Many also signed their name on the dotted line for the chance to win silent auction items such as an overnight stay at Buckhead’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel or a Christian Dior Beauty gift pack by Bloomingdale’s Lenox Square, as well as gift certificates to Phipps Plaza’s Intimacy Bra Fit Stylists, Lilly Pulitzer and more.[nggallery id=26]
