Oh What A Night....Donors are Heroes Party at the Four Seasons





Friday Night was the Donors Are Heroes' 10th annual "THE Party" at the Four Seasons Philadelphia

You can listen while you check out the story, but come back as it's a dark video, and by dark I just mean I could use a lighting system. Maybe dark for the Mariah Carey song he played for the 2nd to last of the night, but loved it any who cause it's so much fun, like THE PARTY. So Much Fun. I'm surprised you were there, it's the best Party, as far as Parties go. Sure I have other favorites, but two days later I'm still relishing in the fun moments. Here we go....
 
 Co-founded by Renee and Don Freeman (Freeman Interiors) Donors are Heroes raises awareness about organ donation.  A group of dedicated friends, committed to raising public awareness for the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor, to dispel myths and provide a means for people to share their donation wishes with family and friends.  This year's co-chairs were Eric Allen (l), Lauren Huezo & Tina Lamsback (center). (I'll have a fun photo on PhillyMag from this party later today.)
Honorees for the night were Bernard and Joan Spain- 10th Anniversary Heroes of the Year Award. Bernie addressing the guests at the VIP party.
There's a reason it's called "The Party" cause as soon as DJ Eddie Tully put the needle to the record the dance floor fills up til the stroke of 11.

 Over $100,000 was raised for donor awareness and education. Did you know it's not against your religion to donate your organs. You could save a life.  This was the cocktail area at 10PM, still packed.
The Four Seasons made the most delicious sliders; they didn't give me indigestion the next day. Now that's saying something.
 Stacey Fetherston, Jenn Deluca, Quinn David and Jennie Riccio, all with Gift of Life
  Looking fly Alisa Jackson - the theme for the night was black and white and Alisa wins for the unique mixed use.

 Kelly Seymar, Patrick Seymar, Lindsay Docherty (She's been blogging a lot about food inspired by the Hunger Games) and Andy Rachlin
 John Westrum and Melanie Martin look like the fabulous couple they are
 Stacey Kracher (Director of Marketing Zarwin Baum) and Marco.  Just about to jet set off to Paris for the Christian Louboutin: the fun and fetishism exhibition. Check out Stacey's Alexander McQueen bag. 

 The best kick ass clutch I've seen, every. Kick ass because if she swings it at you, it's gonna kick your ass
 Kirby and Amber Mallon and Lynsie and Evan Solomon (Lynsie & I volunteer for Donors Are Hero's. I brought her on board. Did you know she's chairing the women's committee fashion show this year at the Union League. Fashions by Nicole Miller, jewelery by Lago's.) were dancing in place, cause the
dance floor was packed all night. That's the kinda party The Party is. For $75 there was a bar, food, music, no attitude and lots of awareness.
 Steffie Freedman and Christa Guidi. BTW if you don't have plans for Mother's Day yet, why not have brunch at Top of the Tower , they're having a Mother's Day Brunch
