HughE Dillon: Give the Shirt Off Your Back Gala

The annual charity ball remains one of the classiest parties in Philly

On Friday, I attended the Give the Shirt Off Your Back gala, which brought out the finest Philly socialites for a good cause. Guests included Kayce Cashman, Sharon Pinkenson, Jamie Apody, Allan Domb, and Steve and Sabrina Thorne.


On Thursday, Adam Carolla will be at Border’s at Broad and Chestnut streets at 1 p.m. to sign his new book, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks. He will appear at Helium Comedy Club that evening.

Nigella Lawson takes readers back to theirs kitchen on Friday at 6 p.m. at Border’s.

Entourage‘s Kevin Dillon will launch the new poker room at Parx Casino on Friday. Folks are welcome to line the red carpet at the front of the house. Dillon is expected to arrive around 9 p.m. There’s also a party in Club 360. Cover charge is $10 before 11 p.m. and $20 later in the evening.

    Hey there hughE! How are you? Would love to make a trip back to Philly around Snow Ball time and see you. Hope you are well! (FYI- picture #16 of 17 is actually Carol and Joe Shanis who live in the Barclay) :-)

    Dear HughE,

    By any chance can you share with me some shots of the non-socialites/celebs who attended the 2010 Shirt Off Your Back Gala (i.e., my husband, Joe, and me)!!!????

    We are deeply involved with this cause, as Kathleen Papa is my sister, and we certainly understand that you can’t publish every single photo you take. This would be for personal use only.

    Thanks so much!

    Warm regards,

    Annemarie and Joe Carrasquillo
