Big hair and padded shoulders were back with a vengeance at Saturday night's seventh annual "Big Night" fundraiser for the Jewish Community Center. The 1980s theme meant the 900 guests could relive the era of Madonna and Bruce Springsteen with impersonators, some dirty dancing, Cindi Lauper, breakdancers, mohawks and other iconic music and imagery from that fabulous decade (Pac-Man, anyone?). More than $500,000 was raised for the JCC's scholarships programs. WPXI anchor David Johnson was in full Miami Vice mode while Nancy Johnson really rocked the padded shoulders. Also there were Robert and Ann Nelkin, Michael and Jill Lamb, Ed and Lynda Wrenn and Lou Weiss.

Correction, posted March 12, 2013: An accompanying photo caption now identifies Jeffrey B. Markel as the JCC board chair.
