There was a lot of fancy footwork at the Maryland Athletic Club recently, and we're not talking aerobics class.
With a rock band set up on the basketball court, dancing was just one way folks could move at the Sweats & Sneakers Gala. Another was to hoof it through the parts of the club decorated to represent certain big cities; the gala's theme was "Dancing in the Streets." In "Miami," for example, guests could tour the new Johns Hopkins School of Medicine's cardiac rehab suite.
Among the evening's "tourists": Julianne Carroll, event chair; Pat Cohen, Ray Daue, Susan Goodell, Bob Connelly, Laura Rubino, Chris Radebaugh and Kay Senft, event committee members; Phil Wendel, Liz and Tim Rhode, MAC co-owners; Dr. Ken Baughman, Johns Hopkins' chief of cardiology; Ernest Burke, former Baltimore Elite Giants player; and Jay Pivec, Pivec Advertising VP.
The jamboree raised $10,000 for the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
