                  Parmis of Parmis Properties (affiliated with Keller Williams Realty) hosted “An Affair
         to Remember” on September 10th to raise funds for the Star VI Foundation. The foundation
         was established on behalf of the three Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies of the July 13
         crash near Lake Natoma. Parmis attended high school with Eric Henrikson, lone survivor of
         the crash.
                  More than 200 people attended the event held at Parmis’ home in Granite Bay. From
         the red carpet walk, to the sushi bar & open bar, to the elaborate fashion show, to the silent
         auction & raffle, it can most definitely be said that the evening was “An Affair to Remember!”
