Shelby's Social Diary
Shaking up the scene at Mo's on Saturday night — for charity
With fans whirling overhead and air-conditioning vents spewing chill breezes, a carefree spirit prevailed on the patio at Mo's . . . A Place for Steaks. That's where more than 200 gathered for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society "Evening Under the Stars" honoring Jared Lang, the popular Momentum Audi honcho. Another 90 guests in the dining room contributed as well.
Putting their heads together to make this a fun, casual night out where hosts Cara Morales, Nancy Marcus Golden, Laura Casey and Mo's proprietor Johnny "V" Vassallo.
With mojitos flowing and Mo's Cowboy Ribeyes selling like hotcakes, Johnny V upped the charity take beyond the silent auction by donating a percentage of the evening's profits to the society.
The special guest was Michael Sarver, an American Idol contestant from Season 8, who entertained with a number of popular tunes including, "The Way She Loves Me"and "Baby I Want You." You might recall that Sarver was an oil rig roughneck from Jasper when he gained fame on the tube.
