Tyrconnell shows sunny disposition


May 21, 2000|By SLOANE BROWN

The grounds of Ruxton's historic Tyrconnell Mansion were in the pink for the fourth-annual "Tea at Tyrconnell." Huge hot pink and orange sculptures dotted the patio, while fuchsia streamers fluttered in the breeze under two tents. And by early evening, many of the 700 guests had a pink glow, courtesy of the sun, cha-cha-cha rum punch or a combination of the two. Or maybe it was the knowledge that the Sunday soiree had raised more than $70,000 for AIDS Action Baltimore.
