Paul's Place Outreach event


April 15, 2001|By Sloane Brown

There in the middle of a nicely set dinner table was a pail with a broom and rake sticking out it, a bottle of pine cleaner and rubber gloves. On another table, a paint can sprouted brushes and rollers. On a third, a plastic tote bin overflowed with office supplies. All left behind by a forgetful cleaning crew? Naw. These were the centerpieces at the 2nd annual March Magic Dinner and Auction benefiting Paul's Place Outreach Center.

These nonfloral arrangements weren't just creatively showing some of the ways Paul's Place helps disadvantaged residents of the Washington Village / Pigtown area. All of the items were earmarked for distribution at the center.

In the meantime, they provided perfect conversation pieces for the 350 formally clad guests enjoying an evening's revelries and raising $115,000 for the center.

Included in the fund-raising crowd gathered at Cockeysville's Grand Lodge: Mary and Scott Wieler, event chairs; Liz Nuttle, Karen Footner, Helen Bonsal and Doris Brackney, event committee members; Melanie M. Heacock, Paul's Place board president; Ann Hankin, Ruth Cromwell, Phyllis DuVal, Kathy Hudson and Anna V. Hughes, board members; Michael Flanigan, JM Flanigan Antiques owner; Lindsay Fleming, Johns Hopkins University lecturer; Vince Clews, Baltimore scriptwriter; Mark Kochevar, University of Maryland Hospital Greenebaum Cancer Center administrator; Barbara Redmond, Greater Baltimore Medical Center associate general counsel; Ted McKeldin, Maryland assistant attorney general; the Rev.
