Delicious art at housing bash


May 14, 2000|By Sloane Brown

That wasn't ice cream in the cones people were munching in the Baltimore Museum of Art's sculpture garden. It was mashed potatoes flavored with mixed herbs and garlic and onion -- some of the "incredible edible art" featured at the Women's Housing Coalition's 2000 Kitchen Party, which was held at Gertrude's restaurant.

Among the 250 guests feasting and having fun: Jane Barrett and Andrea Walls, event co-chairs; Linda Foy and John Shields, honorary co-chairs; Maxine Adler, Claudia Diamond, Evelyn Hoban and Kathleen Talty, event committee members; Susan Thompson, coalition executive director; Roann Nichols, coalition board president; Amy Freeman, J. Brian Voss and Mary Mashburn, board members; Maureen Konschnik, Allfirst Bank executive vice president; Patti Carroll, Aerotek supervisor; Carol Melvin, CAM Management Services principal; and Linda Klein, director of the American Red Cross Holocaust War Victims Tracing Center.

The fete raised $40,000 for the Women's Housing Coalition, which helps Baltimore women and children move from homelessness and poverty to self-sufficiency.
