Ronald K. Brown's acclaimed Evidence, A Dance Company held its 7th Annual Evidence Gala...A Breath of Spring on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 in The Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center. Once again it was one of the season's most glamorous, star studded affairs.

The evening began with cocktails on the mezzanine overlooking the brightly decorated ballroom. The tables all covered in deep orange with masses of spring blooms designed transformed the historic ballroom visually into a field of flowers. While there was enough Moet Chandon Champagne and libations to float an ocean liner, most guests opted for the special cocktail created for the occasion by the master mixologists at sponsor Belvedere Vodka, The Belvedere Grand Cosmopolitan - a delightful mix of Belvedere Vodka, Grand Marnier, Cranberry Juice and fresh lime.

Honorary Chair Pamela Joyner, Evidence Chairman Emeritus Reginald Van Lee and Chairman Zaid Abdul-Aleem warmly greeted such old friends as Phylicia Rashad, new Evidence Board member Larry Satterfield, actress Rhonda Ross, philanthropist Alicia Bythewood and her daughter Brie, Andrea Dubois, and actress and model Princess Keisha Omilana

Then the crowd literally parted at the arrival of the evening's co-emcees Tamara Tunie the star of Law and Order SVU and her handsome husband jazz vocalist Gregory Generet .

The extremely professional staff of renowned caterer Canard, Inc passed such delectable treats as mini mac & cheese squares, crab cakes, tuna tartar and one of the surprise hits of the evening -Buffalo chicken wing lollipops with a celery stick.

Following cocktails guests headed down to the ballroom where Tamara Tunie and Gregory welcomed all before announcing the evenings two award recipients - Janice Combs and United Airlines
