#ItsGoodToGive: The Omni William Penn Hotel was party central on Thursday night as guests came to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Amid glitter and glitz, honorees, alumni and supporters mingled and danced the night away. "I've always been fortunate with my health. I just saw a need and wanted to give back to kids," said honoree Jessica Kennedy. Give back she did, raising the most money of anyone in the country, to the tune of $40,600.
#SEEN: Honoree David Todd toasted with Doc Mendelson as honorees Ali Saras and Gina Rendina posed for pictures. Honoree #SeenBestDressed Michelle DeBlasio (in BCBG) overheard talking about how raising money made her so much more aware of this disease. Meanwhile, proud parents Joseph and Carmela Giaramita raised a glass to their son and honoree, Anthony. 50 Finest alumnus, Wesley Lyons, beamed with pride at his brother, Devon, whom he nominated this year. "I saw what my brother did and it piqued my interest. I'm excited to be a part of it this year," he said. Also #seen dancing were Jacob George, Jodi Ward, Joe Messino, Jesse Goodall, Gary White, and Sean Gray.
