The eight annual Hair of the Dog Gala rocked Philadelphia Saturday, January 5th down by the airport at the Philadelphia Naval Yard's Cruise Terminal. Over 2,000 people partied all night in the huge building to10 bands, their thirst sated at the 22 open bars that were, indeed, open all night. Chorus Communications organized and threw the bash to help raise money for the homeless through the Bethesda Project, and also to benefit the World Trade Center fund. The last song of the night was The Star Spangled Banner, and despite the wild goings on, everyone sang along, many with their hands on their hearts.
 
To kick off Black History Month The African American Museum in Philadelphia held a gala reception in artistic style, Thursday, January 31. The event, hosted by the Multicultural Affairs Congress, begins a two-day celebration of Black fine arts, featuring the Hennessey commissioned works of renowned artist, Leroy Campbell. Leroy Campbell is recognized for his depiction of early 1900's rural southern life and smoky ‘40s and ‘50s jazz club performances with his Neck Bones and Jazz Classics series.
 
The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (or as we say, the YF of PMA) held their 2001 Holiday party at the Philadelphia Club, December 7th. The lively bunch nearly doubled their numbers from last year's party. That, combined with the music, crackling fire, and open bar made for one of the merrier holiday parties around.
 
Princess Grace Kelly's collection of exquisite jewels and fairytale dresses were on display at Caldwell Jeweler's luxe Philadelphia location. At a champagne reception guests milled around display cases, oohing and ahhing over the jewels, collectibles and glassware. Gene London was a most gracious host, spreading his infamous cheer throughout the crowd. At one point, yours truly was asked to slip into one of Princess Grace's dresses and walk around attempting to look regal. I managed not to trip, hiccup, or split the seams. The Princess would have been proud.
 
On December 1st, the Women's Board of the American Cancer Society presented the Crusader's Ball at the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing. After a two-hour cocktail hour, allowing ample time for everyone to mingle throughout the different rooms and look at the auction items, guests were treated to dinner and then danced to the Joseph Claffy Band.
