THE PARTY: Top real-estate executives and colleagues of Long and Foster gathered in black tie for a New Year’s celebration complete with waterfront views of the Wharf. Guests reflected on a prosperous year between sips of creative libations like “The Curb Appeal”, a delicious combination of Irish whiskey, lime, and baked apple syrup. THE PEOPLE: Lonnie Plaster, Long and Foster Senior Vice President, thanked the District’s best realtors for another year of success. Among the crowd was Long and Foster Director of Corporate Programs and Events Traci Hopkins and Director of Corporate Marketing and Luxury Programs Elena Solovyov. BEST IN SHOW: The night was set to the tune of a harpist, gracing the ears of VIP’s gathered in the elegant chandelier room, and later the selections of DJ Tezrah, exciting the crowd of hundreds. As if there wasn’t already enough talent in the room, artist Kayti Didriksen drew blind contour portraits of each guest with colorful mastery.
