The 20th anniversary of the Columbia Festival of the Arts called for a unique celebration. That's exactly what it got with a pre-festival fundraiser, "An Evening with John Waters." But, the entertainment began long before Baltimore's famed filmmaker even arrived. The invitation had read, "black tie and big hair preferred." So, loads of guests jumped at the chance to explore their inner hair hopper. There were heaps of high hairdos and uber-tacky getups everywhere you looked. Michele Toth, a Northrop Grumman vice president arrived as a 1970's Cher look-alike -- resplendent in a slinky mod dress and a long curly wig. Meanwhile, her date, retired Northrop Grumman director Ron Suski, sported a huge Afro.

DALLAS - Jim Dale must have a bit of a wizard in him. As the narrator of the Harry Potter audiobooks, how else can he explain his uncanny ability to bring to life such varied characters as Harry, Hermione, Ron and wise, old Professor Dumbledore? Well ... perhaps there is a little magic involved. Dale says he "inhabits" his characters. "That's really what an actor does. He inhabits the character from the description the author has given him," he said. He also likes to conjure up an audience.

Some 700 bibliophiles booked it to Bibelot in Timonium for "Book Bash 2000." They schmoozed with some 50 authors strategically scattered among the book stacks; scooped up personally inscribed books; and scarfed down culinary treats cooked up by area restaurants and caterers. Best of all, this confab of book lovers raised about $70,000 for Literacy Works Inc., which promotes and supports adult literacy services in Baltimore County. Among those enjoying this combo of reading and eating: Caryn Sagal and Vince Scarfo, event chairs; Karen Bokram, event honorary chair; Pam Malester and Debbie Attman, event committee members; Mike Brennan, Literacy Works board chair; Joe Credit, Janet R. Tolbert, Don Slowinski and Lindy Small, board members; Madison Smart Bell, Velma Maia Thomas, Jack and Susan White Bowden, Jim Dale, Ellen Small and Dr. James Lynch, authors; Katie O'Hare, Baltimore actress; Amy Elias, Profiles Inc. president; Jay Johnson, Northwest Airlines sales representative; Lynn Nucci, T.

Only these were grown-ups -- supporters of the Baltimore School for the Arts -- getting together for the school's annual fund-raiser, "Expressions 2000." First came an evening "class" in theater, music or art, then dinner in the school's ballroom, followed by a performance by past and current students. Although everyone wore a name tag, it wasn't hard to recognize many of Baltimore's movers and shakers in this student population of 450, including: Erin and Doug Becker, event co-chairs; Amy Elias and Sally Michel, past chairs; Clair Zamoiski Segal, school board chair; Sharon Nevins and Jim Dale, board members; Stanley Romanstein, school director; Leslie Shepard, dean of arts; Claire Ingalls, Towson University music educator; former Mayor Kurt Schmoke, partner with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering; Ron Daniel, Baltimore police commissioner; and Martha Macks, president of Goya Girl Press.
