PHOTOS: Spiffed-Up Guests Played Blingo to Cure Duchenne

Over the weekend, Cure Duchenne hosted a fundraiser, Blingo to Cure Duchenne, the Hyatt at Penns Landing. The event generated approximately $173,000 that will go toward finding a cure for a rare muscle-wasting disease that affects 1 in 3,500 boys. Guests — including Ed Rendell — showed up in snazzy attire to enjoy hors d’Oeuvres, an open bar, music, and, of course, bingo with a blinged-out twist. Photographer Mike Hirata shares some shots of the evening below.
