Black and White and Hope All Over

| July 9, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Truman Capote’s vision of a black-and-white ball was in full effect, as all who gathered at this evening fĂȘte in support of Children’s National Medical Center donned the de rigueur ensemble. Standouts included the white-dinner-jacketed emcee/auctioneer, Fox News’ Bret Baier, and his co-host for the evening, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Norah O’Donnell, in her perfectly patterned duotoned frock. THE PEOPLE Political royalty, such as UAE Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba, rubbed shoulders with Atlantic Media mogul David Bradley and his wife, Katherine, along with Hilton Worldwide CEO Chris Nassetta. Humanitarian Cheryl Masri and power couple Mae and Ande Grennan were on hand as well, along with both emcees’ famous significant others—philanthropist Amy Baier and chef Geoff Tracy. BEST IN SHOW Invitations to Paris Fashion Week and the taping of the annual Christmas in Washington concert were just a few big-ticket items during live auction, which raised a record-breaking $158,650.
