The new 12 Bar at 608 S. Peters St. was the lovely setting for the second annual Young Aspirations/Young Artists fundraiser. It featured hand-painted chairs by YA/YA artists, as well as other pieces the students worked on throughout the year. Among the many people who attended the festive event was CNN journalist Anderson Cooper, and a painting of his likeness was auctioned off during the evening. James Andrews and His Band provided the entertainment for the fun-filled evening.
