Actress, Philanthropist, and Author Leesa Rowland and Larry Wohl held her “Old Hollywood Glamour – A Halloween Soiree” at The Venue in the Hard Rock Hotel Times Square New York – an affair bringing out silver screen style and good grace with a special tribute to the stars of the screen. This light-hearted party was a throwback to the times when the movie studios created the stars and starlets who dominated our lives. Guests wore their best classic red carpet looks while enjoying cocktails, and dancing to live music.
