PARTY IN PRAGUE: The annual concert’s “Winter in Wenceslas Square” theme featured carols sung in Czech (including the one about the “Good King”) as well as the inevitable “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” and other favorites. CZECH IT OUT: Cocktails, dinner and dancing for 600 followed on the Roof Terrace where over-the-top silent auction (boasting a 40-page catalog) occupied guests not swooning over the Art-Nouveau-inspired décor and Jack Lucky’s bountiful blooms. CELEBRANTS: Morton and Grace Bender, Winston Bao Lord, Carter and Lisa Cafritz, Linda Stern, Anita and Bill McBride, Jim and Ghislaine Shallcross, Bill and Erica Moorhead, Josh Rales, Pat Sagon, Chuck Ghoorah, and the ambassadors of Afghanistan, Colombia, Bulgaria, Japan, and Mexico.
