We get so entrenched in tech celebrities—you know, a four-star general here, a Lockheed official there—we sometimes forget the real celebrities your mom might even know. We ran into a couple such (and tech ones as well) at Saturday night’s Kidney Ball at the Hilton Washington.


We snapped this picture of original Doobie Brother Pat Simmons with our own Bisnow camera. We think this makes up for every blurry picture we’ve ever taken, although our editor may disagree. Being a crowd full of techies, the audience held brightened iPhones instead of lighters during the ballads.


Not to be outdone, here’s seven-time NBA All-Star (and Georgetown alum) Alonzo Mourning with National Kidney Foundation board member Bill Singleton. Alonzo got a kidney transplant in ‘03, but returned to the league to play five more seasons, including winning a championship with the Miami Heat in ’06. He’s now a spokesman for the National Kidney Foundation and was signing copies of his newly released book Resilience: Faith, Focus, Triumph at the event. We can only guess Bill, a huge hoops fan, was thrilled out of his mind.


CACI Chairman Jack London, wife Jennifer, and National Cathedral vicar Stephen Huber. Jack is busy plugging his book Our Good Nam (recently doing a signing at the Washington Board of Trade) and is planning a move from his home in Arlington out to McLean. This picture could easily be from Jack and Jennifer’s wedding day as Stephen officiated the couple’s ceremony.


Catch the Wind’s David Samuels and Cohen Moore’s Tenley Carp. David tells us his Manassas-based start up makes a laser-based wind sensor system that detects changing wind patterns to make wind farms more efficient. Tenley is still mad at us from a slightly blurry picture of her at a Jewish Federation event a few months back, so she checked our camera before allowing us to walk away.


OK, OK, we know we take a lot of pictures of FedResults COO Bob Dinkel and INDUS CEO Shiv Krishnan and INDUS Vice Chair Carleton Jones, but do we ever get pictures of their wives (Kathleen, Meena and Donna)? Carleton was vice chair of the Ball, that raised a cool million for the National Kidney Foundation, partly thanks to an auction that included a Miley Cyrus signed guitar, a Smart Car, and enough jewelry to sink a small boat.

David Stegon refused to pay the valet $25, but he still dropped his girlfriend off at the hotel’s front door before parking the car. And you think chivalry is dead. Send story ideas to David@Bisnow.com.
