Boston event planner AJ Williams celebrated her 40th birthday with a white party on Nantucket over the weekend. The Saturday-night event was hosted by her pals Linda Holliday, WCVB’s Bianca de la Garza, and Danielle deBenedictis, and was attended by photographer Cheryl Richards, 28 Degrees owner Bill Emery, philanthropist Mary Kakas, and Holliday’s love/Pats coach Bill Belichick, who apparently danced with Holliday to hits such as Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Festivities were held on the lawn at the Beachside Bistro at the deBenedictis’s Summer House, and wrapped up with Williams and friends pressuring a piano player to perform Sheena Easton’s suggestive hit “Sugar Walls.” (Their request was declined.) Earlier this summer, Williams and de la Garza celebrated Holliday’s 50th birthday with a pink-themed party at the Mandarin Oriental.
