2004 Parties
Listing 11-15 of 62

The Breast Health Institute's 10th annual Give the Shirt off Your Back gala was held, again, at the Park Hyatt. Over $400,000 was raised to support the cause. A ballroom plenty spacious enough to hold the six-hundred plus guests. And no, none of the guests were shirtless, though quirky actress, Chloé Sevigny, did lend her support while wearing a gauzy Oscar de la Renta top. This year's honoree was Brian Kappra, owner of the glorious floral and event design outfit, Evantine Design, for his numerous philanthropic contributions.
 
Robins' Nest Children's Services, a group home for abused and neglected teenage girls, held their fundraiser on September 16th at the Union League in Philadelphia. The theme of the gala was the White Tie and Tiara ball - white tie optional, though most of the women took the opportunity to don a coronet, some wearing their bridal tiaras. The gala raised over $140,000 to support their center in Glassboro, NJ.
 
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation held the second annual Tennis Auction Ball (much more fun to call it The Tennis Ball though) on Saturday, September 11th at the Four Seasons Hotel. Master of Ceremonies was Frank DeFord, author (remember Everybody's All-American?) and Sports Illustrated senior writer. He also reads a weekly sports column on NPR every Wednesday morning. Even those of us who don't know an interception from our elbows enjoy it. DeFord has served as National Chairman of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for the past 16 years, honoring his daughter Alex, who died of the disease.
 
La Fete d'Automne, a.k.a. the annual Young Friends of the Philadelphia Art Museum's Rodin Party, was held Thursday, September 9th. One of the better parties for the 25-40 age group, the Rodin Party once again delivered - a slew of well-heeled, attractive young professionals in high spirits converged upon the Rodin Museum at 22nd and the Parkway.
 
The Print Center hosted an opening party for their most recent exhibition featuring Re-Pose by Isaac Diggs, Photoplay by Jenny Lynn, and For You by Liliana Porter. The artists were on hand for questions and conversation as patrons milled about the galleries, wines in hand.
