The band No Bad Ju Ju had the joint jumping during the annual Red Shoe Ball to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities at the Omni William Penn Saturday night. The event, themed “Forks & Corks,” featured a raffle for a trip to Napa Valley won by Denny D’Orazio. Nearly 250 guests mingled with Ronald McDonald and event chairs Susie Johnson (with Bill) and Kim Cantalamessa (with Joby) during the VIP reception. Perusing the 78 auction items were board president Mark Giaquinto (with Leslie), executive director Eleanor Reigel (with Kent), Michael and Kelly Mullen, Patrick and Colleen Heffernan, Joe and Christine Booden and Robbie Hofmann. — Patricia Sheridan
