Vince Fumo and Carolyn Zinni Christmas Party

The Saturday before Christmas Mike and I hit three parties. We went to our traditional Mark Segal Holiday Party and our friends Marty. This year we were invited to Vince Fumo and Carolyn Zinni. As someone who lives a block away from the grand, beautiful brownstone, and enjoyed the years of the storied house decorated beautifully during the holiday’s I was thrilled to finally see what it looked like inside. (For years I also gave architectural tours of Spring Garden and the Fumo has was on the tour.)

Mike and I – You’re probably so tired of this shirt. I will now put it away for a year.

Earlier this year I met former Senator Vince Fumo and Carolyn Zinni at an event at Eastern State Penitentiary. We were introduced by the former president of the board Cindy Wanerman, who told me how the senator saved ESP from the wrecking ball. Over the past few months I ran into the couple at various charity events, and got to know them a little. I was really honored that they invited Mike and I to their holiday party. It wasn’t to photograph it, but of course I want to capture as much of Philadelphia life as I can.

I was only there for about 45 minutes as I had so many parties to attend. So Ann Catania from Ten Pennies was nice enough to send me a few photos. Here’s Anthony Sembello, Councilman Mark Squilla, Anne Cantania, Brigid Squilla and Lauren Beloff.

OMG he turns 18 and blew up the social circuit this year. Garrett Getlin Snider. He’s a college student, on the scene and a seriously philanthropic. He runs his own foundation and consults on his grandfather’s Ed Snider foundation. Next up  Garrett Snider will be hosting a very special evening benefiting the
Vetri Foundation for Children:

Peter Nero, later in the evening he tickled the ivories. He’s with Sheila from NYC.

The spread was impressive.

Happy New Year indeed Vince Fumo and Carolyn Zinni.
Here are the photos to Mark Segal’s party which I attended after leaving the Fumo Party.
