The fourth annual PAFA wine auction, held at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts museum on Friday, September 27th, featured wines of New Zealand and Australia. Astrid Bowlby had an outlandish and clever exhibit of various, cut-out, black, outlined shapes and sizes stuck to the walls, corners, and floors of a room on the first floor. Unless you were strictly business and spit out your wine after tasting it, that room was a little disorienting.
 
The Mann Center celebrates the legendary American composer, Richard Rodgers, in a tribute performance by America's renowned Boston Pops Orchestra. The Pops is famous for its illustrious conductors, including Arthur Fiedler and award-winning film composer John Williams. In 1995, Keith Lockhart succeeded Williams as the third and youngest conductor to lead the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Richard Rodgers, one of the most influential musical artists of the 20th century. During a career that spanned over six decades, Rodgers wrote more than 900 published songs and 40 Broadway musicals and received unparalleled recognition, including Tony, Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy Awards and the Pulitzer Prize.
 
Local actor/director Melanie Mayron, formerly of the show "Thirtysomething", was on hand to help promote her new film " Slap Her, She's French" at the United Artists King of Prussia theatre. After milling about in the VIP lobby at the cinema, making silly French jokes, and munching on the crudites, guests were shepherded into their seats. This movie is hilarious, mostly a send-up of Texan mores and not the Francais-bashing one might expect judging from the title. We won't give away the surprise twist at the end, so make sure to see this when it comes out in September.
 
The annual Best of Philly bash was held July 29th this year at Waterworks, overlooking the river and Boathouse Row. We honored our BOP winners in all five categories: food, nightlife, arts and entertainment, services, and shopping. All the happy businesses and their well-wishers showed up to crowd the patios with over 300 people. Though it was a record-breaking hot day, by the time the band, Silvertide, played it was comfortable enough to dance and scream for the hot, young rockers. The crowd cleared out after their last song around 10:30 – not bad for a Monday night.
 
As if helping abused children weren't a good enough cause, The Children's Crisis Treatment Center held a fundraiser with a Cowboy theme. People came dressed Western-Style, wearing straw hats and turquoise, cowboy boots and chaps. The CCTC is committed to providing high quality, comprehensive mental health services to Philadelphia's neediest children and their families. These services address the effects of abuse, neglect, traumatic events, and other challenges to early childhood development and assist children in reaching their full potential within their homes, community and society.
