More Cashman Holiday Party Pixs & Tidbits

Last week was the Cashman Holiday Party. Oh so many fun people were there, and although I wrote a column for Philly Mag, I left out stories that should be told.

Like the fun cocktail list. Rum Relations, Cash Out and Buzz Worthy.
Philebrities like getting pixs with other Philebrities: Michael Schulson snapping a shot of Rob Waserman and Sharon Pinkenson
Eric Grilly and Maria Valetta looking fashionable as usual
Sports anchor CBS3’s Lesley van Arsdale and NBC10 reporter Aditi Roy. So happy to be in the same town again.
Milana Sigal and Irina Sigal, the stylish dressmaker. At Joan Shepp on 12/14, Irina will be displaying her exclusive evening wear collection perfect for the holiday. Also Wolford’s new Spring ’12 collection of legwear, bodysuits and swimwear will be on hand. 10% of all sales donated to the Parkinson Foundation.
Sorry to Chuck Peruto for not making his holiday party last Friday. I was so burned out, probably from shooting this party. SO many people and stories I was just spent by the time Friday came. I went to bed by 9PM with my headache.
Here comes trouble: Cashman & Assocs, Chief of Staff Keith Petrowski with Jacqueline P. Kelly. I’ve known Keith for a couple years now. He gets things done, and is the right fit for Cashman & Assocs. A charitable guy, affiliated with several organizations, including Alex’s Lemonade, Lemon Ball, which is where I met him. Keith is looking great with his camel hair blazer, black v neck & white t-shirt. Casual, but dressy at the same time.
Jeff Miller, GM Park Hyatt, guest, Laura Burkhardt, The Lab and Vincent Vienne, General Manager Sofitel Philadelphia. GM’s get along.
Jeanette Arthur, Development Associate Fairmount Park Conservancy and Kathryn Ott Lovell, Executive Director of Fairmount Park Conservancy tells me that the 2012 Centennial Celebration will be held at The Horticulture Center in the Centennial District of West Fairmount Park on April 26, 2012. This year they will be honoring Ryan Howard.

The Chestnut Club has a grand room decorated with lighting and draping, with cushioned chairs and sofa’s making the room intimate too. Lighting helps set the atmosphere for an event. This set up is by Brian Toner, of Eventions, who created an intimate setting with lighting and decor.
Looky who else was there, I completely missed her but she wrote later to say “HughE when are we going to meet?” Shannon James (Hunter Pence’s girlfriend. Heather says the trip to Cabo was divine, and Hunter is a laid back gentleman.) With my bud Heather Lee. Not sighted Sen Larry Farnese a who attended the Passyunk Avenue Holiday Party with Councilman Mark Squilla, who did make the Cashman event. I did see the senator at the Keller Williams party the night before right after his appearance at the Rittenhouse Square Christmas Tree Lighting.
Kimberly Jolly has a home with her husband (standing nearby, so don’t start any rumors), here in the States as well as in Australia. She’d love to set up shop with her Physical Therapy practice here in Philly, but the jobs are scarce. Hanging with friend, Caleb Wilkerson, NBC Sports. Caleb is dating pretty Monica Devlin, who was unable to make it to the soiree.Lauren & Philippe Colomb found a comfy seat for two.
At first I thought it was J-Lo, but it turned out to be the just as lovely Aneris Roman, with hubby Edwin Roman, Vice President TD Bank, Commercial Lender

The after party was at Rumor nightclub, where owners Ksenia and Gary Shusman were on hand to show us a great time. Gary gave me a personal tour, explained the concept and should be very proud of the outcome. The place is beautiful, spacious and exciting. BTW have I mentioned what a gold mine 500 Degrees is now. It was always great, but now it’s open til 3AM feeding the masses as they leave Rumor. Gary would like to see more business open late in this area to enjoy in the success.
Relaxing after a night of spinning at the Cashman Party, DJ Adrian Hardy hangs with Sarah Coosan at Rumor.
Check out today’s Philly Mag column here. It’s about Girard College documentary, and I ran into Gary and Larry who gave me a little more info about the new restaurant with Chef Matt Levin. http://blogs.phillymag.com/the_philly_post/2011/12/07/hughe-dillon-girard-college-film-screening/
