Over at Philly Mag on Tuesday we covered mostly the chefs (& by we I mean me, Bob Dole.) P.S. Even if your photo appears on PCC, it could still make it in the magazine.
I don’t like Pink Floyd – Dogs, but I do like “Wish You Were Here”
Pet lover and founder/president of PAWSDana Spain was front
and center welcoming her guests and then guiding them through the
evening from cocktail party, to dining tables, and then upstairs to
complete the night at the dessert bar under the watchful eye of
presidents Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln and the George W. Bush—all
of their portraits hang at the Union League.
The Wineburgh’s and Evan & Lynsie Solomon.
On the social scale this
event is a 10, and no matter your political persuasion or your past
indiscretions, the crème de le crème show up for this event to support
PAWS’s animal-rescue initiatives,
which include adoption and foster
care programs, spay-and-neuter surgeries, low-cost vaccinations, and,
of course, to be seen in their party best.

And because she’s so awesome I’m gonna give her a live link to her business. Dana is partner atHarvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar
The Joans: Joan Pileggi and Joan Spain. What an honor that Joan Pileggi reads my blog, and told me she loves my photos. I’m keeping Philly Classy. (ie do not read my coverage of the scantily clad peeps at North Beach.) and Joan Spain. Before there was Carrie Bradshaw, there was Claire Rose.
I’m always amazed by the generous donation various charities get for their silent auction.
