Ella Markowsky believes that the tone of New Year’s Eve will set the tone for the rest of the year. She and her 12-year-old son, Aiden Ortiz, hosted Viva Las Vegas New Year’s Eve Gala for 250 people. Guests drank champagne from light-activated glasses while showgirls, magic, comedy, live performers and a unique DJ enhanced the party that lasted until 4 a.m. Photo opps were aplenty with a giant clock as the background and oversized playing cards, ginormous champagne bottles and feathered trees to select from. Alla Sokolova and Natalya Casper enjoyed the sensory overload.
