Coastal Virginia Magazine's annual Best Of Party was held on Thursday, July 27 at Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center in Downtown Norfolk. Guests gathered on the red carpet for a vintage Hollywood-inspired evening celebrating the magazine's Best Of Readers' Choice Awards with live music from Bachelor Boys Band, delicious food and fun with ticket sales benefiting the Alzheimer's Association of Southeastern Virginia.
