The American Heart Association held one of Phildelphia's largest charity balls at the Convention Center Marriott on Saturday, March 9th. More than one thousand people attended, and along with generous corporate sponsors, managed to raise more than $500,000 for the AHA. Enchantment Under the Sea was the theme, as evidenced by the sighting of mermaids weaving in and out of the crowd. The live auction featured hot-and-heavy bidding and the auctioneer's spotters had a hard time keeping their eyes on all bidders. One item, a luxury cruise aboard a Silverseas ship contributed a sizable amount to the AHA's fund.
 
Over one thousand young Philadelphia area professionals stormed the annual Red Cross Red Ball, one of the year's best Young Friends parties, on March 2nd at the Union League. This fete is done on a grand scale – from the 30 or so restaurants that provide the food, to the band, CTO, an eleven member sound system. There was the usual dancing and cavorting, but with an especially keyed up level of interesting tension since about three-quarters of the guests were attractive, single and had been enjoying the open bars and Lucy's Hatshop shots.
 
The barefoot guy running up the stairs of the Chamounix Mansion to his bunk didn't seem to notice or care that there was a party going on to celebrate the building's 200th anniversary. The birthday took place on February 23rd. He was a guest at the Mansion – a historic hostel. It wasn't always a place for backpackers and adventurous travelers though. The Plumstead family used it as a seasonal retreat at the turn of the century (1802, that is) and from there it was used variously as another family's home, a restaurant, boarding house, clubhouse and picnic site until 1964 when a group searching for a youth hostel rescued and refurbished it.
 
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network's first Annual Dinner was held at the Warwick Hotel on February 21st. The small but select crowd was peppered with local and semi-local politicos, like Ed Rendell, former Congressman and area director for the Environmental Protection Agency, Pete Kostmeyer, and current New Jersey Congressman Rob Andrews. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network works closely with the American Littoral Society, a coastal conservation organization, to empower people to take active roles in protecting our waterways.
 
The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art held their Annual Black-tie Gala on Saturday, February 2nd, in the grand hall at the Museum – always one of the most beautiful venues in the city. One of our favorites, The Elastic Wasteband, rocked the twenty and thirty-something crowd from start to finish. Mother Grey Goose provided miniature martinis and itsy-bitsy, pink, Cosmopolitans - both a big hit with the throngs. Museum officials swooped down on the party around eleven o'clock, cutting off the liquid supply (them's the rules) so those in the know and all who weren't quite done that early headed for the Rotunda at The Ritz on Broad Street. Cigar smoke swirled blue above our heads and champagne and cognac were passed around as the night aged gracefully.
