The Chimes' musical gala

Maryland Scene

November 07, 1999|By Sloane Brown

The Chimes agency rang in some 2,000 music lovers, and $325,000, at its fund-raising benefit at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The event featured a reception and a concert by opera star Jose Carreras.

Even before the internationally renowned tenor took the stage, a buffet in the lobby hit the perfect pitch for opera aficionados such as Terry Perl, president and CEO of the Chimes; Eileen Levine, Elaine and Alvin Katz, Judith Martinak, and Susan and Gary Talles, event co-chairs; Allan Levine, the Chimes' board chair; Steve Kramer and James Phillips, board members; Hal Dahan, the evening's honoree; Dr. Cesar Castillo of St. Agnes HealthCare; Marc Winner, president of F. P. Winner Ltd.; Steve Gigliotti, VP and GM of WMAR-TV; Arlene Mandel, manager at the dental office of Feldman, Sachs & Fitzgerald; and Janice Altman, fitness-wear distributor.

The Chimes offers programs and services for Marylanders with barriers to independent living, including mental retardation and other disabilities.
