Event chairwoman Sheila
and the gala committee raised over $1.25M at the
most successful Sibley Hospital event ever, a dinner to benefit
the Cancer Center. The Mars Family Award recipient was Sen.
Arlen Specter, and the Hope & Progress Award was presented
to Thomas Sullivan. A highlight of the evening was the gift, by
an anonymous donor, of $50,000 to purchase the auction’s
showpiece, a Lois Mailou Jones painting. The donor asked only
that the work, “find its home at Howard University” where the
painter taught art for many years.
