A righteous event


August 22, 1999|By Sloane Brown

How do you get to Rock and Roll Heaven? For some 50 Righteous Brothers fans, heaven was as close as the Tremont Plaza Hotel. The dulcet-toned duo, in town for a concert at Pier 6, met with those fans at a reception for the benefit of the Baltimore Association for retared Citizens.

As Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield entered the banquet room, an "Ebb Tide" of memories came flooding back to their followers. "Anyone who grew up in the 60's stood in front of the mirror--at some point--and used a hairbrush as a microphone to sing "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," said guest Debbie Hood.

Medley and Hatfield signed autographs and posed for photos with almost everyone at the party. Among the attendees were Steve Morgan, BARC executive director; Michael Howard, BARC development director; Bob Philips, WQSR-FM general manager; Craig Tarlton, president of MidAtlantic Carwash; and Hilanne Myers, administrative services manager for G.r.8, a computer-services company.

The reception raised $4,000 for BARC programs and services.
