The speeches were short, and the dinner was long.

"We just come and eat, and enjoy each other's company," said WMAR-TV sports director Scott Garceau of Give Kids a Chance, the party he and his wife, Georgeanna, co-chaired with Doug and Cheryl Goodell at Hillendale Country Club. This was the eighth annual gala fund-raiser for FACETS, a Catholic Charities group home for troubled teens in Harford County. Enhancing the evening's enjoyment factor was a six-course gourmet meal, featuring taste treats such as blackened alligator, New York strip topped with shiitake mushrooms, jumbo lump crab meat and Smithfield ham, and chocolate Chambord torte.

Diners included: Mary Maffezzoli, FACETS administrator; Hal Smith, Catholic Charities executive director; Beverly Liggon, FACETS program director; Billy Yerman, president of Merit Title Co.; Barbara Plecker, owner of Coleman Plecker's World of Golf; Brian Billick, Baltimore Ravens head coach; Melissa Greenhouse, president of Meeting Solutions Inc.; Terry Walsh, president of RCBK Mortgage Corp.; Chuck Boyle, owner of Boyle Buick; Latisha Anderson, state legislative auditor; and Arlene Nyquist, unit director for Villa Maria.

The get-together garnered $10,000 for FACETS.
