THE EVENT: The ‘50s were in full swing at the 20th annual Best Friends Foundation’s annual benefit in support of middle and high school students striving to make the right choices. THE SCENE: Guests donned poodle skirts, lettermen jackets and Grease-inspired garb to twist the night away to the sounds of Chuck Brown and The Drifters. D. C. Councilmember Jack Evans and Michelle Seiver led a line dance worthy of Sandy and Danny, and not even the pouring rain could stop the fun. THE GUESTS: Best Friends founder Elayne Bennett and Bill Bennett, Sen. Mel Martinez, Sandy and Bill Bennett, Mike Skehan and Andrea Rohan and Marcia Carlucci.
