MIDTOWN VILLAGE FALL FESTIVAL 2010 INFO & SPONSOR PARTY

Last night the Holiday Inn Midtown hosted the Third Annual Sponsor party for the Midtown Village Festival, which is this Saturday 10/2/10 on 13th Street between Walnut and Market, and several side streets.
On hand for the festivities were Kelly Magnoss, Aubrey Allen and Leslie Girove
Fusion Cross Training Fitness’ Jesse Frank,& Meredith Magoon , with Bill Gehrman and Tutti Frutti’s Kevin.
Michael and Ellen Feist were on hand. And even though Ellen was telling me about how scary the Eastern State Penitentiary’s Halloween Tours are, not once did she shout Boo and scare me. (Thanks to Ellen & ESP for the charity donation for Gilda’s Club)
Fruit Flowers, Susan Ellman and Ellen Davis. Love this place.
Silent Auctions are always a huge hit
Tony and his crew from Raw. Tony tells me that the Sumo Wrestling boxing ring was damage by the last renters, and if they aren’t able to get it fix in time, peeps might be jousting instead. That sounds like fun too.
Rick Naughton and Jason Lewis
Starr Restaurants (Cashman & Associates) Thanks for getting me the dinner for two at any Starr Restaurant for the Gilda’s Club event I had.
Noel Zayas, Vasili and George Tsiouris and Annette Cintron are gearing up to open their new restaurant on Sansom called Opa Modern Greek in the fall.
Joanne Sprung, Holiday Inn Midtown with Karen Lewis, Ave of the Arts director. Karen has a big trip to Egypt in the coming weeks. WaHOOO
The White Brothers, David and Gary flank Midtown Village President James McManaman. James and David also own Absolute Abstract and were kind to donate a beautiful print to the Gilda’s Club charity event I did on Monday night.
The Beer Garden by the pool was a popular spot to hang
Ray Cromer and Mike Fanalle(www.Bozeken.com)were on hand. The Gold Mardi Gras necklaces were your ticket to drinks and food. I made the mistake of wearing it on my wrist. Major fail for several reasons. Scary looking and got in the way of shooting cause neither of us are wrapped too tight.
Paul Stango and another of his great creations. (Katie Ryan was the PR of this event and did a great job. As well as Chris Mullins, from McGillin’s, Mark Beyerle, Joan Rivera of SpecialtyUSA)
