2004 Parties
Listing 51-55 of 62

On Saturday, March 6th the fifth annual Friends of the Red Cross's Red Ball raised over $120,000 this year for the Red Cross organization. A new venue for the popular young friends' ball - the new National Constitution Center - they hosted almost double the number of attendees. The previous four balls were held at the Union League. The change of venue was refreshing (and blissfully smoke-free, except for the balcony outside where the usual little herd huddled). As expected, there was a sea of red gowns and bowties. One woman wore the standard black dress but had red shoes, earrings, necklace, and opera-length gloves!
 
Loew's Hotel welcomed a sold-out crowd to the annual Human Rights Campaign gala on Saturday, February 28th. The ticket and auction proceeds went to the Human Rights Campaign organization, who promote equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people nationwide. www.hrc.org
 
The Young America Political Action Committee, a non-partisan group of people ages 22-40 or so, held a cocktail reception at Red Sky restaurant and bar in Old City on Thursday, February 26th.
 
The 2004 Taste of the Book and the Cook was held at Loew's hotel on Wednesday, February 18th. The popular festival, which showcases guest chefs at some of our favorite restaurants, holds this tasting each year to kick off the series.
 
Once again, the Philadelphia Museum of Art's young friends' took over the Great Hall for their annual gala. **Starlight** was the theme. Propped against various walls, posterboard cutouts of 50's icons such as James Dean and of course, Marilyn Monroe added to the retro feel. Some girls wore vintage gowns (even if their dates didn't seem as enthusiastic about dressing up in 50's attire). Though attendance was off a little this year, by ten p.m. the dance floor managed to be the main attraction and as usual, the PMA staff was hard-pressed to herd everyone out by the Cinderella curfew.
