2004 Parties
Listing 31-35 of 62

The Philadelphia Zoo held a pre-party called The Animal Ball on Wednesday, June 9th for their annual Zoobilee. The attire at this high ticket, invitation only gala was exotic couture, which meant lots of animal prints. The swelteringly hot weather meant that many men showed up in shorts and loafers. They managed cummerbunds and dinner jackets, but the legs were bare.
 
The Children's Crisis Treatment Center held their annual Rodeo Roundup at the National Constitution Center on Friday, June 4th. James Ingram showed his support for this wonderful charity in a stellar performance. Supporters of the CCTC wore jeans and flannel shirts, red handkerchiefs, cowboy boots and hats, and other western-inspired gear. CCTC provides mental health services to abused, neglected or troubled children and their families, such as a therapeutic nursery, outpatient services, trauma assistance, and a West African Refugee Assistance program, among others.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art hosted a roaring twenties themed party, Art After Dark, on Saturday, May 1st, to benefit their education department. There were costumed actors (in character) like flapper floozies with sequined headbands and dangling "ciggies" , gangsters with spats, and a billyclub wielding copper to set the tone.
 
The second annual Summer in the City party at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts again made the year's top ten parties (according to my careful calculations after attending over 300 parties). Held on Saturday, May 22nd, it attracted society, business leaders, music lovers... all in summer cocktail attire. Colorful ties and/or jackets on men, and if some women were slightly overdressed in formal dresses, they did keep to the idea of warm weather colors. The performances were stellar - The Miracles, Patti LePone, and Little Richard this year.
 
Laurel House battered women's and children's shelter held a fundraising dinner at the Philadelphia Country Club in Gladwyne on Friday, May 14th. The theme was An Evening with Friends. Eagles coach Andy Reid and his wife Tammy were honorary co-chairs.
