Jefferson Hospital's Glitz & Glam Gala
Can anything set the tone of the evening better than a champagne bar?
For 600 guests of Jefferson Hospital's Glitz & Glam Gala, the answer was a unanimous no.
Co-chaired by Barb and Bill Magnotti and Rich and Micki Talarico, the record-breaking crowd was indicative of just how much the event has grown.
“Six years ago, we had 350 guests, and we were thrilled,” PR maven Theresa Kaufman said.
Benefitting the Jefferson Women's Health Initiative, the evening also included a performance by The Unexpected Boys, a renowned tribute act to the Four Seasons.
Spotted among the crowd were board chair Gregory Harbaugh (with Gail), Jefferson Regional Medical Center prez John Dempster, Drs. Tony and Katie Farah, Dr. David Blandino, Patricia Liebman, and Dr. Timothy Honkala.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
