Maryland Scene

April 04, 1999|By Sloane Brown

Camden Yards was swinging even before baseball season, thanks to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Spring Swing.

Close to 400 partygoers packed the stadium's sixth-floor lounge to browse the buffet and hone their lindy hop on the dance floor.

Among the hep cats hanging around: Kendel and Robert Ehrlich Jr., event co-chairs; Josie Schaeffer, executive director of Cystic Fibrosis, Maryland chapter; Suzanne and Bruce Hoffman (he's chairman of the Maryland Stadium Authority); Dr. Craig Smith, CEO of Guilford Pharmaceuticals Inc.; Dr. Beryl Rosenstein and Dr. Pamela Zeitlin, co-directors of the Cystic Fibrosis Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital; Wanda Draper, WBAL-TV's director of public affairs; Dr. Robert Draper, orthopedic surgeon at St. Joseph Medical Center; and Gengy Vaikness, Pam Shriver's event director.

The Spring Swing spun up $75,000 to help fight cystic fibrosis.
