The gathering in Historic Folsom brought an array of luxurious vehicles to the Dec. 21, 2013 event. In association with Frans Loriaux Photography the event gave guests the opportunity to enjoy fine dining at Hampton’s and allowed visitors to view classic automobiles and enjoy the company of beautiful fashion models.
Hampton’s on Sutter owner Michael Hampton along with business partners Eric Medrano and Imran Aurangzeb cordially welcomed visitors to their establishment. The smell of tri-tip cooking on the barbecue lured more customers as well.
Theadora Man CEO at Z Models & Talent and President at 5-Diamond Productions endorsed the Exotic Car Gala and brought in models and Miss Greater Bay Area contestant winners. Also attending were other local beauty contestants.
Representatives from Sacramento Fashion Week, SacMetro Magazine, EuroSunday, Dreams & Drivers and local celebrity Arlene Barshinger amongst others could be seen enjoying and networking the Exotic Car Gala.
A VIP after party was held in the back patio of the Hampton’s on Sutter where guests indulged dining on the restaurant’s food specialties and drinks.
Folsom continues to bring in specialty restaurants, pubs and other shops to Sutter Street. Many of these establishments adhere to the look, feel and elegance of Folsom’s Historic District. To this end it must be noted that the Hampton’s on Sutter is located in the renovated “Donnelly House” which was built for Folsom’s first constable, James H. Donnelly, in 1894.
The Exotic Car Gala created by Frans Loriaux Photography and hosted by the Hampton’s on Sutter was well received at its venue and attracted a good size crowd. The Exotic Car Gala, in my opinion, has the potential to become a recurring event and would be welcomed by many of the surrounding businesses.
