Museum of Industry benefit


May 21, 2000|By Sloane Brown

Shades of the days of ships steaming into Baltimore's harbor returned to the Baltimore Museum of Industry for its "Steamboat Landing Party." More than 500 partygoers bustled among the museum's working exhibits, sampling a sumptuous buffet and playing casino-style games. If they took a walk outside, they could get a gander at the real thing, the 1906 steam tug Baltimore.

Among those enjoying a taste of traveling back in time: George Kirkley, event committee chair; Marc Seinfeld, event committee member; Raymond J. Piechocki, Baltimore Museum of Industry board chair; Margaret Fielding, Lou Kistner and Ron Bray, board members; William Cole, museum interim executive director; Eliza Bulley, WBAL-TV producer; Richard Davidson, president of Davidson Transfer & Storage; Suzanne Wolff, community relations manager with Mercantile Bank; Bill Ewing, Maryland Food Bank executive director; Lynn Lockwood, Baltimore County Public Library assistant director; Steve Duklewski, principal with Harvest Investment Consultants; Alison Stewart, teacher at Maryvale Preparatory School for Girls; and Matt Jackson, ATM America vice president.

The event raised at least $25,000, which will go to helping the Baltimore Museum of Industry preserve the city's industrial heritage.
