Gordon Lightfoot concert

They offered him scuffed album covers, featuring his face from 30 years ago. And Gordon Lightfoot accepted the tributes graciously -- autographing the prized cardboard squares before handing them back to fans at a post-concert reception at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium. This was an evening full of treats -- the show, the chance to meet the folk rocker, and a yummy dessert buffet featuring such goodies as bananas Foster, cream puffs and chocolate torte -- with the proceeds going to Sheppard Pratt Health System programs for children and adolescents with mental illness.

Among the 300 Lightfoot fans who lingered in the lobby: Bluma Jed and Gail Shawe, event co-chairs; Byron Forbush, Sheppard Pratt board chair; Tim Hearn, board vice chair; Frank Galletti and Howard Cohen, board members; Dr. Steven Sharfstein, president and CEO of Sheppard Pratt Health System; Donna Hamilton, WBAL-TV news anchor; David Paulson, president of the Mockingbird Co.; Sheilah Davenport, chief operating officer of Crownsville Hospital; Henry Wright, owner of Selsed Vineyards; and Sondra Wells, administrator for Emerging Growth Advisor Inc.
