21st Century Society--The Philadelphia Orchestra's Young Friends' group, threw a costume party on Halloween in the lobby of, where else?, the Kimmel Center. While this party was a bit tamer than Henri David's it was by no means dull. Pretty people in imaginative costumes, open bar, a great band, and the ultimate venue ensured that!
No one took off their shirt at the Breast Health Institute's Give the Shirt off Your Back for Breast Cancer dinner gala on October 25th at the Hyatt at Penn's Landing. Last year the event came with a handful of buff, half-clad young men to underscore their point. This year, like last year, Brian Kapra and his team at Evantine Designs did the flowers and decorations. They were among the most spectacular we've ever seen at any event too, with each table bearing a fashion designer's name and a floral theme to go with it. Thierry Mugler was our favorite, with purpley-blue hydrangeas and giant shooting silver stars springing out of the four-foot-high arrangement. This year's event raised $350,000 toward the fight against breast cancer.--Click on small images to see entire photo--
The American Cancer Society of Southeastern Pennsylvania held their annual Crusaders Ball on September 28th, instead of in December this year. The event raised almost $300,000 – a grand success for a great cause. The decorations and giftbags, at the Crusaders Ball were especially noteworthy. Some of the board members actually sewed the green, silk bags themselves. Now, that is commitment. Look for this event next year – it's sure to be one of the better ones of the season.
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.
There aren't many days with as perfect weather as Thursday, September 12th, when the Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum Art held their annual Rodin Party in the courtyard of the Rodin Museum on the Parkway. One of the better Young Friends events of the year, it drew a considerable crowd which packed the walkways outside the museum chatting and mingling with specialty martinis in hand.
