Sweet feast for ARC


March 26, 2000|By Sloane Brown

Good company and gobs of chocolate made for great chemistry at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab in Howard County. At the ARC of Howard County's third annual Chocolate Ball, 400 folks marveled at the 30 chocolate creations -- such as a basket filled with fruit, a Faberge egg on a tasseled pillow and a chocolate wedding cake being scaled by chocolate spiders -- displayed in the lab's Kossiakoff Center. This was a sit-down dinner where you had to leave room for dessert.

Among those who tried to save room: Gordon Mumpower, event chair; Nancy Bond, Lee Draminski, Ashley Campolattaro and Walter von Rautenkranz, event committee members; Carol Beatty, ARC of Howard County executive director; Richard Dean, ARC board chair; Tom Meachum, ARC board vice president; Kim Sherman, John Burk and Debbie Daskaloff, board members; Vic Broccolino, president and CEO of Howard County General Hospital; Jim Greenfield, president of Columbia Builders Inc.; David Tripp, vice president of the Rouse Co.; Vivian Bailey, Howard County community activist; Lynn Byrnes, ARC residential house manager; and Darryl Gerald, sales manager for Canada Dry Potomac.

The Chocolate Ball raised almost $50,000 for the ARC of Howard County programs and services for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
