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.
 
Inliquid.com and The Art Biz hosted the second annual art auction at the performance garage of Jeanne Ruddy Dance on September 22nd. DJs Crystal Clear and Cozmic Cat provided music throughout the silent auction and later, at the after party at Ruba Hall. Profits from this event will benefit the community-based cultural education center, Taller Puertorriqueno's, children's art programs. Over 75 local artists and 60 businesses donated items to be sold at auction.
 
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts held its 3rd annual wine auctions, to the delight of area winelovers. The event took place at the beautiful Museum at Broad and Cherry Streets on September 21st. Sotheby's humorous and able auctioneer, C. Hugh Hildesley, conducted the sale of some very rare and highly sought-after international wines. After viewing and tasting the lots of wine, bidders competed to see who would take home these prized items. A gourmet dinner was served in the rotunda, surrounded by gorgeous works of art.
 
Mercedes Benz sponsored a test-driving promotion in Philadelphia to hype its new 2001 C-class. Their slogan, "Live. A lot," in this case led to Swanky Bubbles on September 20th. The idea is to get people out to drive the cars by offering a free appetizer with their meal. Good for the restaurant, good for Mercedes. If you want to buy a Mercedes-Benz, then it's good for you too.
