Like the good book says — “Let there be light” — the wattage on February 21 at Grace Cathedral was off the hook during the 13th Carnivale gala.

Led by event cochairs Clement Xue and Robert J. Brown, with emcees Liam Mayclem and KPIX reporter Betty Yu, 463 supporters donned electric black-tie ensembles for the soiree, themed The Future Is Bright, which glowed amid the cathedral’s grand Gothic naves.
