A limousine scavenger hunt to benefit the Greater Philadelphia Film Office was held Saturday, November, 17th in The Mayor''s Reception Room. The first scene was a lively cocktail party as guests gathered to receive clues to films shot in Philadelphia. The action continued as the guests raced to waiting limousines to scour the City unraveling riddles, all the while nibbling food and sipping (or gulping) champagne. Meanwhile, back at The Hall, the hunters returned to the victory party, scores were tabulated and prizes awarded as all enjoyed dessert and dancing.
 
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.
 
On Monday, October 22nd The Marian Anderson Award was presented to musical genius Quincy Jones. Marian Anderson was one of the most celebrated African-American contraltos of the twentieth century. She was born in Philadelphia in 1897, and became a beloved symbol of the triumph of talent over prejudice and bigotry. Eleanor Roosevelt herself was a high-profile supporter of Marian Anderson and engaged her to sing at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939. The award presented to Quincy Jones was preceded by tributes at the Academy of Music by the Philadelphia Orchestra, opera singer Grace Bumbry, legendary trumpeter John Faddis and a blow-out, sing-along with Stevie Wonder.
 
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.
