The Roaring '20s were celebrated during the third annual River Rocks party to benefit the Aspinwall Riverfront Park at Fox Chapel Golf Club Friday night. It was all feathers, fringe, spats and hats as guests got their Gatsby on for the cause. Patsy Ford wore her grandmother's authentic flapper sheath, while others did their best with contemporary versions. Nearly all the 500 guests came in costume. "We sold out again," said Sarah Tuthill, who co-chaired the event with Diane Walsh and Amanda Carvelli. Susan Crookson (with Currie), founder of the movement to transform the old Aspinwall marina into a public park, was equally delighted. Bathtub gin, casino games and a cigar bar gave the party a real Jazz Age ambiance. Amid dancing, gambling and mingling some were checking on the Penguins game. "We made sure there was a TV in the Peacock Lounge," noted Mrs. Crookson. Among those looking like the bees knees were Cris and Alex Scott, Duke and Nancy Kingsy, Jane and Guy Hermann, Dana and Duffy Hanna, Martha and Eric Lightfoot, Chris and Kym Pelcher, Dan and Barb Eichenlaub, Dennis and Annie Cestra, and Chip and Carole Burk.
