Paintings of birds decorated Center Stage's Head Theater for the 1999 Nightingala party. But the entertainment came in human form, as Marthanne Verbit presented an evening of piano theater to benefit the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Community Health Nursing Program.

Among the 320 guests enjoying the high-flying night: Anne Pinkard, honorary event chair; Renee Waldron and Terry Ulmer, event co-chairs; Townsend Kent, Lindy Lord, Chessie Donnelly and Mary-Ann Pinkard, event committee members; Sue Donaldson, dean of the Hopkins School of Nursing; Dr. Bill Brody, Johns Hopkins University president; former Baltimore Colts quarterback Marty Domres, now with DB Alex. Brown; Cheryl Hudgins Williams, public affairs manager for Procter & Gamble Cosmetics; Dave Tripp, Rouse Co. vice president; and Drs. Daniele and Karen Rigamonti, Johns Hopkins Hospital neurosurgeon and anesthesiologist.

The event raised more than $114,000 for the nursing program, which provides health care to needy Baltimore families.
