Festival of Trees


Scores of trees, a buffet dinner and a visit from Santa.

The 1,400 guests attending the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Festival of Trees preview party enjoyed all that and more at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, and helped raise $36,000 for the institute.

Among those traipsing through the trees were Carol Knott, event chair; Anna Reahl and Amy Sussman, event committee members; Gary Goldstein, Kennedy Krieger president and CEO; Henry A. Rosenberg Jr., board president; Grant Hathaway, Mike Batza, Ron Creamer, Sandy Baklor and Jamie Alban, board members; Jean Yarborough, Northwest Baltimore Corp. president; Cindy Conklin, a Realtor; Sharon Barnette, Baltimore City schools employee; and Sedonia Martin, publicist with Towson University.
