The Young Friends of the Academy of Music Pool Party Fundraiser – or as I like to call it Babes & Boys in Swimtrunks

Last Sunday I headed out to the lush green fields of the Mainline

for the Young Friends of the Academy of Music Funday Sunday pool party fundraiser.

The hosts for the day were Sam Hamilton and Christie Honigman (Co-Chair of the Young Friends of the Academy of Music Ball), The Honigman Group, who along with Teresa Nino executed many of the fun details of the party. I love, love this invitation Christie created.

I was pretty excited since I saw two cardinals for the first time this spring.

When I spotted this I knew I was in for a great feast of BBQ.

“Drive by Ribbing.” A Gentleman hailing from Texas named Bubba pulled up in pickup truck hauling a giant BBQ smoker behind him and fed the entire Barnes staff delicious BBQ brisket, ribs, pulled pork and chicken. It was so good! Come back soon and often Bubba. Here is Bubba with staffer Kate Slattery in front of the smoker.
