"It took four cans of Aqua-Net," laughed Kristen Lane as she pointed to her hairdo homage to Ol' Blue Eyes.

Co-chairing Saturday's Pittsburgh CLO Guild Ball with her mother and board chair Patti Matty, the "Come Fly Away" theme provoked a few to get into costume, while others erred on the side of caution.

"My tie has blue in it. Ol' Blue Eyes, blue tie," joked CLO executive producer Van Kaplan with Mary Jane Brennan.

More than 400 socials were expected to filter into the ballroom of the Westin Convention Center, where the tall, dark, and handsome in the room described the towering bamboo and cocoa-bark stand centerpieces a la Hens and Chicks. The late Marie Ganassi (a 41-year Guild member) was honored posthumously with the CLOE Award, accepted by her husband, Floyd, and grown children Annette Ganassi and Chip Ganassi.

Prexy Norma and Dr. Michael Sobel, Maryann Boehm, Athena Sarris, Dan and Debby Booker, Jen and Jason Ross, Armand and Marilyn Dellovade, Tony and Linda Bucci, Moira Davison, Dennis and Diane Unkovic, Kim and Curt Fleming, Chris and Tom Kobus, and Nick and Anne Liparulo rounded out the VIP list.
