Around Town

December 14, 2003|By Sloane Brown | Sloane Brown,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

It was a sporting night at M&T Bank Stadium, but the sport in center court wasn't football, but tennis. As in Pam Shriver's "Mercantile Tennis Challenge." The tennis matches themselves would happen the next night.

This evening, some 350 tennis fans gathered in the stadium's club-level lounge to enjoy a cocktail party and rousing live and silent auctions.

There were also sports heroes to pass the time of day, with folks like Pam Shriver, pro tennis player Ashley Harkle-road, former tennis player Andrea Leand, former Oriole B.J. Surhoff, and Ravens president David Modell.

Also spotted in the crowd: Ned Kelly, Mercantile Bank chairman / CEO; Tom Wilcox, Baltimore Community Founda-tion president; Clinton Kelly, Baltimore Tennis Patrons president; Hal Donofrio, Campaign for Our Children CEO; Ken Trout, Rosemore Inc. executive vice president; Werner Kunz, Harbor Court Hotel managing director; Sherri Thompson, Baltimore banking consultant; Peter Quinn, Greenhorne & O'Mara senior vice president; Steve Krulevitz, Steve Krulevitz Sports Camps director; Lewis Noonberg, Piper Rudnick partner; Bob Koch, Northrop Grum-man Electronic systems executive director of communications; Carole Buchman, Plymouth Wallpaper interior decorator; Jeff Harris, Morgan Stanley financial adviser; Rogin Oegerle, Ferris Baker Watts marketing director; Deborah Stanko, Forest Laboratories pharmaceutical sales representative; Jose Schaeffer, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation executive director; J.M. Schapiro, Continental Realty Corp. CEO; Judy Kenney, AT&T retired financial manager; Ken Wilson, DreamFit Sheets vice president; Kevin McGill, McGill & Associates president; Rebecca Peterson, Tech Learn-ing Mid-Atlantic sales representive; and Claudia Grimm, WBAL Radio account executive.

The evening netted about $55,000 for Baltimore Tennis Patrons and other children's charities through the Baltimore Community Foundation.
