Over 275 hair salons helped raise funds for The City of Hope National Medical Center by participating in a large-scale hair design contest on October 19th. City of Hope raises money for cancer and HIV/AIDS research at the City of Hope National Medical Center and Beckman Research Institute.
 
The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts kicked off its American Artists' show at the 33rd Street Armory on Thursday, October 17th, with a preview gala for patrons. Guests browsed the artists' works and nibbled at the sumptuous snacks heaped upon tables all through the showfloor. The preview gala was organized by the tireless Women's Board of PAFA and chaired by Nancy Guthrie.
 
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.
