U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke and his wife, Mona, were guests at the 32nd annual Kennedy Center Honors, which awards individuals for exemplary lifetime achievement in the performing arts. Mona Locke wore a dress by local designer Luly Yang.
Honored were Mel Brooks, Dave Brubeck, Grace Bumbry, Robert De Niro, and Bruce Springsteen.
The Lockes recently returned to Seattle for Christmas and to celebrate Gary Locke’s 60th birthday early. (His birthday is actually in January.) ♦
