St. Agnes Foundation


October 28, 2001|By Sloane Brown

If it's true that "Laughter is the Best Medicine," as the St. Agnes Foundation called its fall gala, then the mezzanine at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel more than filled that prescription.

Some 400 formally dressed guests socialized around tables of hors d'oeuvres, chuckling at chance encounters with actors masquerading as Laurel and Hardy, Lucille Ball and a couple of literal "dumb waiters." The revelry continued into the ballroom, and into the night, with dinner and dancing 'til the wee hours.

Among the festive throng: Dimi Mexis and Josephine Hochuli, event committee members; Bruce Weinel, St. Agnes Foundation board chair; Kyle Swisher, St. Agnes Foundation president; Jean M. Colandrea, Fumiko Campbell and Michael Stafford, board members; Ken Bancroft, St. Agnes HealthCare board president; Patrick Bozel, Bozel Transfer president; Rhonda Chinapoo, St. Agnes registered professional nurse; Robert Davenport, Crothall Healthcare Inc. environmental services director; Dr. Zahid Butt, St. Agnes gastroenterologist; Gary Dumer Jr., Cornblatt Bennett Penhallegon & Roberson attorney; Dr. George Kesten, Chevy Chase dentist; Charlie Froehlich, retired Union Trust Co. senior vice president; Bob Segal, Capital Financial Planning vice president; Tod Mour, U.S. Capitol police officer; Roxie Powell, Baltimore Office of the Mayor youth career specialist; and Dr. Marcos Roffe, St. Agnes radiologist.

The party's happy prognosis? Some $35,000 raised for St. Agnes HealthCare.
