Opera Camerata Spring Gala!
We headed to Harvard University's Center for Hellenic Studies Saturday night for Opera Camerata of Washington's Spring Gala. The evening was hosted by the Ambassador of Greece, Christos Panagopoulous. We snapped Columbia General Real Estate's John Hoskinson and DoD's David Gallalee surrounding the evening's emcee, Robin Phillips.
We joined guests at the Residence of the Executive Director for the cocktail reception and dinner. Here, Harvard Medical School's Chris Bryke joins the director's wife and host Mary Ellen Tasillo with Pharad's Dalma Novak.
In addition to the festive reception, guests enjoyed a dinner and performance of Donizetti's L'elisir d'Amore. Here 1776's Margaret Shepard joins attorney Ana Fabregas.
Throughout the evening, bidding on the silent auction continued to grow with items such as premium seats at this summer's hottest concerts and sporting events. Composer Thomas Schuttenhelm joins Howard University professor Norman Sandridge with Legal Shield's Suzanne Helman and International Cuisine's owner, Cary Pollak.
Despite the rain, guests enjoyed a beautiful evening filled with opera. Here, Best Marketing's Liz Sara joins Smith Advocacy Group's Duncan Smith.
