You might have read, or seen on local TV news about the good Samaritan that left $5,000 in tips to a server and $2,000 to bartender Samantha Trasatti at Rouge in Rittenhouse Square.
took the tip and threw herself a 30th Birthday Party with gifts/proceeds going to PAWS
When the last bit of confetti was swept away, over $2,500 was raised for the animal organization ( and having a helluva good time in the process.)
Camac Street (next to U Bar) was closed and the party commenced with a golden theme.
(Do you know what Camac spells backwards?)
Friends from all walks of life came by to support Sam Trasatti
Tommy George, Jo Trasatti, Szymon Bykowski
Jessica Webster (Newly blond), Caryn Kunkle, Saga, and Samantha Marzullo
