Evans’s Nantucket Fundraiser Gets Buzz
While vacationing in Nantucket, Ward 2 councilman Jack Evans was the star of an Aug. 9 fundraising party, hosted by lawyer Max Berry, which raised $40,000, according to the Washington Post.
Former D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams, once an opponent of Evans in the 1998 Democratic primary for mayor, introduced Evans to a crowd of Washingtonians, staying on the island. “Tony Williams and I worked together for many years. He’s very popular. Anything positive he says about me is very helpful,” Evans told the Post.
Guests included, according to the Washington Post, “Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Wizards and Capitals sports teams; Daniel L. Korengold, dealer principal of Ourisman Automotive of Virginia; restaurateur Bo Blair, a co-host of the Nantucket fundraiser; developer Richard Levy; and lawyer Laura Handman.”
