Didon Comer hosted her annual exotic costumed birthday party on Jan. 25 in the theme of the letter "D" this year. Guests had fun and let their imaginations run wild as they dressed in costumes as anything beginning with the letter "D." Those enjoying the festivities at Didon's Seagrove Beach home included Brenda and Jim Radtke, Beth and Bob Coppedge, Hank White, Harriet Crommelin and Stephen Marlette, Paul and Sandy Luchtefeld, Meg Nelson, Garrett and Nina Horn, Maunsel and Karen White, Jim and Bert Summerville-Kain, Polli Youngbeck, Donnelle Clark, and Meg Warrington. I hear a great time was had by all.

Hank White attended Didon's party dressed as a director. After the party he returned home to some good serendipitous news. He had a message waiting about live streaming for the Sundance Film Festival awards. By the time he hooked up, the editing award for U.S. Documentary Films was being handed out. The next category was for Best Director and Hank's son, Ryan White, and Ben Cotner were announced as the winners. Hank said it was truly amazing watching and listening to his son being recognized as Best Director and then seeing him accept the award live.

The Emerald Coast Cattle Baron's Ball held its second branding party Jan. 23 at Seagar's. Barbara Miller, Don and Betty Hefner, Ray and Martha Jones, Sandy and Greig Buckley, Tim Krueger, Wanda Duke, Ken Hair, and Donna Johns were some who attended.

I hear that Kent Lillie enjoyed a game of golf with Sanford & Son's Demond Wilson while he was here last week.

Escape to Create artist Jenny Krasner's work was celebrated at the Seaside home of Marsha Dowler last Sunday at a meet and greet there. Krasner is currently on sabbatical at Seaside for the month. Her work hangs in the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art.

Lynn Wesson, Carol Rankin, and Gale Culling attended a Sinfonia dinner for Jamie Bernstein last week.

Kent and Peggy Lillie hosted Anne and Chuck White last week for dinner preceding their winter getaway to Miami. Joining them were Hollis and Penelope Risley and Allen and Hilary Butler. Hollis was just elected the new president of the Sandestin Owners Association and Hilary is launching her new magazine next month, “Inside the Gates” for Sandestin residents.
