The Book and The Cook, an annual event in its seventeenth year, overtook Philadelphia for 10 days in late March. We attended a smattering of events, the best ones highlighted here for you on The Scene.
 
Members of The Opera Company of Philadelphia's Club Bravi enjoyed a short reception during the intermission of Porgy and Bess at The Academy of Music on Friday, April 27th. The performance was just spectacular and received a lengthy standing ovation. This is the 25th Anniversary Season of The Opera Company of Philadelphia.
 
The Main Ballroom at the Park Hyatt Bellevue was filled on April 25 with over 300 women, mostly, who were there for the annual Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Daisy Day Luncheon fundraiser. Then event raises money to help cover the financial gap between the amount that insurance companies will cover and what the children's families can afford to pay. Over the past 25 years, the annual campaign has raised more than five million dollars. CHOP provided more than fifty-eight million dollars in uncompensated care in 2000. A fashion show with designer Michael Kors' Fall 2001 collection was presented by Saks Fifth Avenue and featured supermodels Maggie Rizer, Missy Rayder, Karen Elson and Oluchi; all of whom came in from New York to support CHOP's humanitarian efforts.
 
The future of children's tennis was celebrated by over 900 guests, celebrities and at the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis Center in Manayunk on Saturday, April 21st. The Hawaiian-theme evening (you'll note the lovely array of flora and fauna worn by guests) was started with a rousing performance by several of the center's children whose lives have been bettered by tennis. The18th annual benefit featured its famous silent and live auctions, with some truly extravagant items; a $25,000 two-week deluxe trip to Australia from Swain Australia Tours); a private dinner for 12 at megachef George Perrier's house; and tickets to the French Open with hotel and airfare. Proceeds from the event benefit 6,000 youngsters throughout the Philadelphia Area.
 
The 16th annual SCANtastic was held at Memorial Hall on Friday, April 20th to benefit SCAN, the Supportive Child/Adult network, aka, Stop Child Abuse Now. All proceeds from this benefit go directly to SCAN, which offers services free of charge to its clients. Over 2,000 guests arrived to support this cause and were treated to a food wonderland, catered by 150 restaurants. If they could move after feasting, partiers danced to the tunes of at least 5 bands before placing bids in the silent auction. To volunteer at SCAN, call 215-590-1504.
