ISLAND CHIC: Colorful leis, sandals, and sundresses replaced the usual fabulous hats at the Jamaican Women of Washington’s annual fundraiser to help families in need of medical care both here and in Jamaica. GRACIOUS HOSTS: Jamaican Ambassador Anthony Johnson and his wife Pamela co-hosted the Sunday afternoon affair with Michelle Fenty, the District’s Jamaican-born first lady, taking care to enliven the scene with reggae and calypso music, jerk chicken (among other island specialties provided by Negril restaurant in Silver Spring, Md.) and the ambassador’s own tasty rum punch – “one part sour, two parts sweet, three parts strong, and four parts neat.” Drink three, he promised, and “you are walking on air!”
