Casino gala benefits MS


A gastronomic journey at the Center Club's Fifth Annual Casino Gala raised $20,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Summer Camp Campaign.

Some 208 guests began their "Evening on the Riviera" by diving into Mediterranean seafood antipasto spread in one room and continuing on their epicurean excursion with sushi, pasta, carved beef and dessert stations set out in others.

As if that wasn't enough, at midnight, breakfast was served.

Getting their fill at this food fest: event co-chairs Dr. Mark J. Gloth and Theresa G. Giardina; Calvin Hargett Jr., president of the Muscular Dystrophy Association Maryland-Southern Delaware Executive Committee; Annie Kennedy and Katie McGuire, camp co-directors; Michele Dressman, camp nurse; Julie Mercer, Young Members' Committee chair; Lark Pfleegor, designer with Patrick Sutton Associates; Al Reid, president of Rapid Response Inc.; and Jack Marks, president of John Marks Associates Advertising.
