THE EVENT: Fight For Children’s “Back to School with the Stars” benefit rocked this year thanks to a knock-out performance from Grammy winner John Legend. THE SCENE: 800 partygoers received a $100 certificate to the website www.donorschoose.org to support a micro-financed school project – such as buying art supplies for a class room in the District. Three schools: Strong John Thomson Elementary School, E.L. Haynes Public Charter School, and San Miguel School received the $100,000 Fight For Children’s Quality Schools Initiative Award. By the end of the night, over $1.5 million was raised to support Washington schools. THE GUESTS: Joe Robert, Jr., Mayor Adrian and Michelle Fenty, Katherine and David Bradley, Jim Kimsey, and Roger and Vicki Sant.
