Big night at Heart Ball


February 20, 2000|By Sloane Brown

It was a big night at the American Heart Association's Heart Ball. Big place, big turnout, big hearts. The party was held inside the Warehouse, next to the Rusty Scupper on Key Highway, where 715 guests gathered to raise more than $230,000 in the battle against coronary disease.

It also was a celebration of Baltimore. The building brimmed with bits of Charm City history and projections of cityscapes shimmered on the brick walls.

Mingling among the memorabilia: William Donald Schaefer, event chair; Chuck Knudsen, logistics committee chair; Donald Kirson, sales committee chair; Bud Russell and John Sandblower, event committee members; Grant Cole, board chair of AHA Mid-Atlantic Affiliate Maryland Council; Neil M. Meltzer, board chair-elect; Jay Weinstein, Jackie Gaines, Larry Frank and Sheldon S. Satisky, board members; Bob Kirkpatrick, executive vice president of the AHA Mid-Atlantic Affiliate; Dr. Ligia Peralta, assistant professor of pediatrics, University of Maryland; Rich Galen, vice president of the Rouse Co.; Jerry Edwards, president of Chef's Expressions; and Dr. Sandy Quartner, obstetrician-gynecologist at GBMC.
