HERE COMES BO For the 17th year, Festari for Men presented its Una Notte in Italia fall gala, the much-anticipated social + fashion + charitable bash. Each year, a cadre of male celebs take to the runway to benefit nonprofit bereavement center Bo's Place, and this installment was no exception: Chairmen Jennifer Brown and Christie Sullivan and honorary chairmen Debbie and Rudy Festari packed the runway with a top-flight collection of gents, from athletes to businessmen and philanthropic mainstays, who were cheered on by more than 650 devotees of all things Italian.
