The Tenth Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair, the brainchild of Chef Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox Restaurant, took place at the Ritz-Carlton on Feb. 1. It is one of the happiest events of the year as pets and their families come together to honor The Washington Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement Officers, Animal Control Officers and Humane Educators. Holly Morris of Channel 5 saluted the honorees who “make this a better community for us and our animals.” Over forty restaurants participated in what Ellen Gray termed “the best sugar high.” A record number of attendees sampled mobile restaurant treats from food trucks including Cap Mac and Red Hook Lobster Pound before proceeding to the ballroom to enjoy confections and savories from Marcel’s, Restaurant Eve, The Source and Bourbon Steak among many others accompanied by wonderful wines.
