THE TALLY IS in for the World's Largest Office Party, the Hyatt Regency's annual bash held recently to benefit the WBAL Kid's Campaign and Santa Claus Anonymous. More than 2,000 partygoers raised about $15,000 for the charities. Celebrity bartenders from all over town filled 20 bars for several hours, vying for the most tips to help the cause. At our bar station, the Maryland State Lottery's Frank Kaufman and Don Royston urged the masses to dip into their pockets by giving out key chains that double as instant lottery ticket scrapers! Across the room, Attman Properties Lenny Attman and son Gary bartered to fill their tip jar by tempting all with cookies.
