Getting Glitzy at the Georgetown Gala
The 2012 Georgetown Gala, “Putting on the Glitz,” and put on by the Citizens Association of Georgetown, returned to the Russian Embassy Oct. 26, with vodka, caviar, champagne, a dinner buffet and a live auction — and, of course, dancing and more dancing, this time to the tunes of Big Ray and the Kool Kats. Hundreds of residents, business leaders and politicians were also there to honor Pamela and Richard Hinds for their work on historic preservation and public safety. Gala co-chairs were Nancy Taylor Bubes, Michele Evans and Patrice Miller. Sponsors included “community pillars,” Long & Foster, Exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International, Vornado Realty Trust & Angelo Gordon & Co. on behalf of the Shops at Georgetown Park, along with M.C. Dean, Inc., MRP Realty, Washington Fine Properties (Nancy Taylor Bubes), Western Development Corporation, EagleBank and the Georgetowner.
Unlike last year, Mayor Vincent Gray could not stay for the dancing — there was a hurricane coming, after all.
