Happy Hearts

| May 2, 2014 | Parties

The Party
The American Heart Association’s annual gala attracted 600 local donors who toasted to healthy hearts at the Mandarin Oriental Washington, DC.

The People
The black-tie affair featured notable names, including CBS correspondent Nancy Cordes and Washington Capitals announcer Joe Beninati.

Best In Show
The high-dollar event met its fundraising mission with $1.4 million raised from ticket sales and an auction that featured pulse-racing prizes, like a National Geographic-sponsored trip to the Gal├ípagos Islands and an opportunity to sit in the announcer’s booth with Beninati during a Caps game.
