Love Ball!

Washington DC The Scene

We dropped by the Rockville Hilton on Saturday for the Montgomery County Humane Society’s annual Love Ball. Guests and man’s best friend were dressed to impress. We snapped Walt and Bobbie Gold with their pup Beeje along with Maryland State Delegate Ben Kramer and Cindy Craven.

Almost 300 guests were out late for dinner, cocktails (doggie bar included), and dancing until their dogs were barkin’. Humane Society president Cris Bombaugh is flanked by Bernstein Cos.’ Sherry Clinton, Van Guard Realty’s Luis Guevara and Greg Klein.

MCHS is the largest animal welfare organization in Montgomery County, providing rescue and care to thousands of homeless animals every year. Adoptee Sweetie, while the eldest attendee, was the youngest at heart, wheeling around the celebration.
