THE DIPLOMATS DANCE: The Ambassadors Ball has long been an informal “coming-out party” for newly arrived diplomats, a major affair with a lavish auction and a swing band after dinner to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year’s 30th annual event honored Sens. Orrin Hatch and Byron Dorgan and Reps. Russ Carnahan and Michael Burgess, and the diplomatic hosts were Amb. Denis Antoine of Grenada, and Amb. LaCelia Aritha Prince of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. THE GUESTS: Many of the city’s top diplomats, including ambassadors from Afghanistan, Switzerland, Gabone, Trinidad and Tobago, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Hungary, Mexico, Swaziland, and Luxembourg.
