OVECHKIN; LEONSIS; COURIC; MISS DC; BERNIE WILLIAMS


 

Can a 22-year old athlete get any more awards than Alex Ovechkin hauled in last week? Hmm, hard to imagine, though we suggest he consult Tiger.

 

We were on hand Friday evening at Teatro Goldoni as Caps owner Ted Leonsis (we don't really have to tell you which one he is, do we?) and Capitol File feted newly minted NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin, here also with former Caps star Peter Bondra and wife Luba.


SLUGGER/CROONER AT OAS

 

Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Mantle and Bernie Williams all played center field for the Yanks but only Williams is in the record books for strumming a guitar. The classically trained musician once performed with the Boss himself (and we don't mean George Steinbrenner). We found him Thursday speaking at the 35th anniversary of AYUDA, an organization defending the rights of low income immigrants. 

 

Also on hand, and crowned just two weeks ago, Miss DC 2008 Kate Marie Grinold, left, with Deborah Sigmund, director of Innocents at Risk. Kate, an Eastern Market native, graduated in May from GW's Elliott School of International Affairs.


KATIE!
 

Years before Katie Couric was a household name, she said she was told in a meeting that she was successful because of her hard work, industriousness and breast size. "That was before broadcasting executives discovered that harass isn't two words," Couric told a crowd of 250 on Tuesday at the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, the Capital Hill site devoted to the history of the women's rights movement, where she picked up the Museum's Alice Award, named for Suffragist Alice Paul. She and friend Laurie Powers are both active in the fight against colon cancer, which claimed Katie's husband and Laurie's father. 

 

Couric's former WRC-TV colleague and friend Barbara Harrison emceed the event.  


Dolce Design heats up Middleburg!

 

We went Saturday night to the beautiful Ritz Carlton Club at Creighton Farms for a Dolce Design Collection inspired fashion show. From left, Dolce Design founder and CEO Cynthia Bapst, Thomson Consulting's Bob Thompson, and Homeland Security Capital Corp. CEO Tom McMillen, who some of you may remember as a former Congressman and Bullets star (that's why he barely fits into the picture).


POWER WOMEN

 

These are not just powerful women, but we're pleased to say some of our favorite work associates and sponsors, dining the other day with us at the great Park at 14th: from left, JM Zell's Sharon Dougherty, Arent Fox's Denise Delorey, Transwestern's Jackie Raff, KMK PR's Katherine Kennedy, Russell Reynold's Denise Grant, and Sheppard Mullin's Melissa Schuman.
