W hat turns the B&O Railroad Museum's roundhouse into a barn? A whole lot of rain. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation planned for its annual Spring Swing party to be inside a Glyndon barn. But spring showers turned the barn's grounds into a muddy mess. The shindig's locale changed, but the evening's theme - "barn chic" - went on as planned. Several hundred guests milled around the old locomotives in their best farmhand bib-and-tucker, including all of the evening's co-chairs: Courtney and William Toomey , Amy and Mark Lavelle , Jamie and Charles Seymour , and Suzanne and Stuart Amos . Steve Geppi , Diamond Comics CEO, arrived in jeans and a sports jacket.

The fall fundraising party season revs into high gear next weekend with a plethora of big shindigs that can cost big bucks to attend - all for a worthy cause, of course. From the Night of 100 Elvises to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Gala, tickets can go from $26 to $5,000 each. With such a broad range, you might wonder what goes into setting the price. Why does one hoopla cost so little, and another so much? Certainly, there are expenses to cover. A fancy gala that offers hors d'oeuvres, open bar, a gourmet sit-down dinner and live dance music is going to cost the organizers a lot more than a party that might have local restaurants and liquor distributors donating their wares at food stations, with a cash bar. But, there are a few more factors that go into the mix. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Maryland Chapter is one of the busiest nonprofits, with seven major parties a year, says Ann Krulevitz, the chapter's associate executive director.

Collaboration is the word of the year in the Baltimore restaurant scene. Every month delivers new announcements about good-natured cooking competitions or chefs "popping up" in one another's restaurants. Baltimore's chefs work hard in their own kitchens, but they also have a great time getting out and playing with the rest of the local culinary community. Over the past few years, chefs say, as the city's food scene has blossomed, so have their relationships. For a handful of Baltimore chefs, the root of those friendships is in volunteering.

FLASHBACK TO THE 1940S AT THE SCOTTISH Rite, courtesy the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The theme for this, the 15th annual Harbor Gala, was "Swanky Club Soiree." When guests entered the building, they were greeted with a glass of champagne and tunes from a trio of would-be Andrews Sisters. And when it was time for supper, they made their way downstairs to the ballroom, which was decked out in glamorous white linens and ostrich-feather centerpieces. But, what made those nightclubs -- like the Coconut Grove, Copacabana and Latin Quarter -- the "in" places in their day was the chi-chi crowd who went there.
