The Alley Theatre’s annual men-only fundraiser, held at the Coronado Club, was helmed by Jonathan Finger and Scott Wulfe. The Wild Things bash featured cocktails and dinner, plus a live auction full of guy-friendly items like a dove hunt in Argentina and a golf trip to Santa Fe.
Some 100 dapper dudes, decked out in tuxes, talked sports and holiday plans while waiting for a hand-rolled cigar—passed out by pretty girls in men’s shirts and animal-print accents—and perusing the silent auction. Dinner was grilled antelope chops, served on tables with linens of leopard.
Pro shotgun shooter Gil Ash, who’s been highlighted on ESPN and other networks, spoke to the guys—including the Alley’s Dean Gladden, along with Meredith Long, Ralph Burch and Bob Cavnar—after dessert. Ash has competed and won titles in skeet and sporting clay competitions, and now coaches, boasting his own instructional videos. –Photography by Wilson Parish
