Sweet Styles

| June 1, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY Some of the district’s top chefs showed off their fashion prowess, creating one-of-a-kind couture for a runway literally draped in chocolate. When not eyeing the cocoa creations, guests were treated to noshes from more than 50 of DC’s best restaurants, including Rogue 24 and Fiola. During the silent auction, the gathered got the chance to bid on court time at Arthur Ashe Stadium and a private tour of the Redskins Training Camp. THE PEOPLE Emcees Leon Harris and Natasha Barrett joined in the festivities, along with Chancellor of DC Public Schools Kaya Henderson and Heart of America Foundation’s Bill and Angie Halamandaris. Bob Madigan, Kate Michaels, Top Chef Just Dessert contestant Heather Roth and chef Susan Notter were also on hand to judge the not-quite-edible ensembles. BEST IN SHOW The event also honored those committed to making a difference by bestowing the Hero of the Heart Award to Leah Gansler, founder of CharityWorks, and the Principal of the Year Award to Tiffany Clemmons of C.W. Harris Elementary School. Photography by Tony Brown
