There's nothing quite like dining on the front lawn of a grand old house, reveling in a summery evening, and relaxing after an afternoon golf game. That's what Civic Works offered 200 supporters at its second-annual "Spring Swing -- Golf Tournament and Dinner Auction" at Clifton Mansion.
As guests supped and socialized, the sounds of songbirds mingled in the background with 1940s swing music, recalling an earlier era.
In the crowd: Dana Gans and Randy LeFaivre, event co-chairs; Marc Bunting and Stuart Brooks, event committee members; Dana Stein, Civic Works president and executive director; Tony Hawkins, Civic Works board chair; city Councilwoman Helen Holton, Mimi Roeder Vaughan, Tricia Ellis and Fred Struever, board members; Bev Thomas, Baltimore community activist; Rob Bostick, BGE marketing and energy services manager; Paul Ellis, ReVisions Foundation executive director; Diane Gordy, state administrator; Chuck Goldsborough, Team Lexus league driver; Steve Hazan, Bank of America vice president; Terry McDonnell, general sales manager for Carroll County Foods; Sibyl Kane, AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer; and Tony Pagnotti, WMAR-TV personality.
"Spring Swing" raised $32,000 for Civic Works' community service projects and education programs.
