Philadelphia Cares held its third annual Turkey Ball at City Hall on Friday, November 16th. There was a live band, open bar, tables of munchies and boxes to collect the canned goods that guests brought. Philadelphia Cares is a local non-profit, volunteer organization that mobilizes thousands of volunteers year-round to help meet critical social, educational and environmental needs throughout the Philadelphia area. The ball is their largest gala. All ticket sales and silent auction proceeds benefited the ongoing programs.
 
The Young Friends of the Community Coalition and 170 of their friends held their Philadelphia dinner cruise on the Delaware, Wednesday, November 14th, aboard The Highlander. We pushed off at 7:15 from Penn's Landing to the tunes of jazz group, The Underwoods. Community Coalition is a non-profit organization dedicated to charitable services for the homeless, family support services, one-to-one advocacy, all with the basic idea of respecting the dignity of each individual helped.
 
The Print Center of Philadelphia held an open house auction called Beatnik Bash, with staff and guests dressed in black berets and turtlenecks. The crowd was enthusiastic (not a Beatnik trait, but hey, this is Nouveau Beat) and pre-bid on such items as an original Robert Asman Print.
 
On October 12th, the Red Cross threw its Summer Soiree and packed the Rittenhouse Sheraton. The party, which started at 8 with appetizers and open bar, was really going by 9:30, and by 10, to give you an indication of the spirits of the partygoers, the open bar had run out. All proceeds benefited the Red Cross – even more generous were those attending who added donations to the price of their admission ticket.
 
The Breast Health Institute and Fashion Group International teamed up to raise money to aid in the fight against breast cancer. On Friday, October 12th, nearly 250 people arrived at the Hyatt Regency to take part in the effort, themed "Give The Shirt Off Your Back". Cocktail hour was drawn out a full hour and a half later than expected as people were having such a marvelous time. When we did enter the ballroom at the Hyatt, it was jaw-dropping – colored lights flashing everywhere for the pre-dinner dancing in a gauzy tent in the middle of the room. Not the least of the scenery were the delectable male dancers who had, indeed, already given the shirts off of their backs.
