When and Where: Monday at Heinz Field Club East, North Side.

Let's Misbehave: Roughly 400 party-goers arrived dressed to impress in flapper-style flair. The drinks were flowing (it is the roaring '20s, after all!) and guests were invited to learn a few signature steps out on the dance floor before The Skivvies performed during dinner. Melanie Croc-kard, auction committee chair, was first to put on her dancing shoes. "This is such a fun party, year after year. City Theatre is incredible and misbehavin' is the least we can do to support it," she said. The event raised more than $225,000.

One of a Kind: "City Theatre is the only theater in Pittsburgh doing new works, which is so exciting. I'm really looking forward to 'Smart Blonde' about Judy Holliday," said gala co-chair June Yonas, who had her dress handmade for the event.

Quotable Moment: Patricia Ward Kelly, Gene Kelly's widow, has produced a one-woman show about the screen legend. "I hope that through my show they get to really know Gene. It's a very personal and unique theater experience because there were so many dimensions of him that people rarely saw."

#SEEN: Clyde Jones and Robert Morris, Samuel Clyde Badger, Eric Wagner, Paul Gitnik, Larry Leahy and John Van de Grift, Jane and Bud Kahn, state Rep. Dan and Debbie Frankel, Ron and Dianne Duursma, Sydelle Kessler, Jack and Jill Neely, Tim McVay and David Bush, Aaron Kahn, Sally Wiggin, Joe Mineo, Mike Labriola, Jason Kollar and Bob Sendall.
