The Paint and Powder Club's President’s Ball on April 1 honored philanthropists Henry and Dorothy Rosenberg for supporting the club and the Baltimore-area community.
About 110 guests paid $110 each to attend the gala at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley. It featured performances from the Maryland State Boychoir and the Maryland Conservatory of Music, two charities the club is aiding this year. Frankie and the Pack entertained as well.
The gala for the club -- incorporated in 1893 -- comes ahead of its production, "Bonbon’s Naughty, Bawdy, Gaudy Musicale" June 2 and June 3 at the Scottish Rite.
Henry Rosenberg will be honored this year as part of The Baltimore Sun's Maryland Business and Civic Hall of Fame. In its announcement, The Sun's editorial board noted: "The grandson of a pioneer in the fuel industry, Henry Rosenberg continued his family’s tradition of innovation as the long-time head of Crown Petroleum. ... A major philanthropist focused on youth, education, arts and culture, Mr. Rosenberg has held leadership roles in the Boy Scouts of America, Johns Hopkins Health System and the Kennedy Krieger Institute."
