Listing 81-85 of 89

On Sunday, February 9th, The Ritz-Carlton hosted a benefit dinner and auction for the James Beard Foundation in their sumptuous ballroom below the rotunda honoring devoted foodies, Harriet and Shelly Margolis. Guest chefs from six different restaurants joined the Ritz's Philippe Reininger in presenting a six course gourmet feast. Despite someone's (not the Ritz's) poor planning on the timing of the dishes (the live auction was staged between courses, dragging the event out to nearly five hours) when the fare did appear, it was to everyone's delight.
 
The Philadelphia Museum of Art held a black and white black-tie gala to celebrate the opening of their exhibit, "Degas and the Dance" on Wednesday, February 5th. Ballerinas pirouetted up and down the great stairs underneath giant white balloons that were tied with black ribbon. The dinner, served after a champagne reception, was worthy of a standing ovation in itself.
 
The Young Friends of the Philadlephia Museum of Art held their annual black tie gala at, where else, the art museum, on Saturday, February 1st. Last year, the Grey Goose mini martinis proved so popular that they offered them in greater variety this year. The Elastic Wasteband got the guests dancing almost immediately after the party started at eight.
 
Philadelphia Magazine held the third annual Philly Cooks!, a chef competition to benefit MANNA, the Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance, on Wednesday, January 22nd at the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing. Guests made the rounds stopping at favorite restaurants' tables to sample appetizers, entrees, desserts and coffee.
 
Philadelphia Magazine's Volunteer of the year, Willard Rouse, was presented with a gorgeous bronze statue in recognition of his generous works. Last year's Volunteer of the Year, Anne Hamilton, was there to cheer him on with the rest of the guests at the Ritz Carlton's ballroom.
