The Avenue of Dreams Gala at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Saturday, June first, drew a crowd of about 400 people. The gala benefited the American Diabetes Association. The Rich Posmontier Orchestra stirred everyone up after dinner with classic tunes and some dance music. People seemed to need to let loose after holding their collective breath through the live auction. One particularly hot item was a wine tasting dinner for fifty people – valued at $2,000, it went for over $6,000.
 
The Wildflower Ball, to benefit the Brandywine Conservancy, was held at the Radnor Hunt clubhouse on Saturday, May, 18th. The next day the Radnor Hunt Races proceeded despite the misty, chilly weather. All proceeds from the Radnor Hunt Races directly support the Brandywine Conservancy's award-winning programs to preserve natural and cultural resources in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Northern Delaware. The Conservancy also operates the Brandywine River Museum. This Civil War era grist mill was converted into a modern museum. It is internationally known for its unparalleled collection of art by three generations of Wyeths and for its outstanding collection of American illustration, still life and landscape painting.
 
The Young Friends of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropolgy honored Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, with a Bacchanalia Garden Party in the Museum's new Stoner Garden on Thursday, May 16th. About 200 Young Friends and their guests came after work to hang out and enjoy a couple glasses of wine. All in the name of preserving history. The proceeds benefited the Roman and Etruscan Galleries at the Museum.

Philadelphia Magazine and the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board teamed up to present the First Annual Philadelphia Wine Festival. Preceding the grand tasting on Thursday the ninth of May, internationally known winemakers hosted exclusive dinners at fine restaurants in our area on Wednesday, May eighth. The dinners were sold out as oenophiles from as far away as Los Angeles and London called in their reservations to have a chance to meet winemakers such as Laurie Hook, Renzo Cotarello, Warren Winiarski, Richard Ponzi, and Roger Trinchero.
