The Washington Life 2020 Social List

The 25th annual record of notably social individuals from politics, diplomacy, business, philanthropy and the arts.

Michael & Cleo Gewirz

Michael Gewirz is president of Potomac Investment Properties, a Washington, D.C. real estate investment firm. Cleo Gewirz serves on the boards of the Alliance Francaise of Washington, the Piedmont Environmental Council and the Newport Art Museum.

You divide your time among Washington, D.C., the Virginia hunt country and Newport, R.I. What is your major focus in each? When we are in Virginia our lifestyle is casual, we enjoy hosting tailgates at the steeplechase races, putting together a group for the Middleburg Film Festival, country sports like riding and foxhunting, shooting, hiking, biking, etc. Newport is very social too, and a bit more formal. You can go out every night! We play a lot of tennis and golf, spend time on the water and at the beach, and we love the Newport Folk Festival and newportFILM. We host a lot of houseguests (family and friends) there.

How would you describe your entertaining style? In Newport we do all the black-tie galas, but our favorite thing is to have people over for dinner or cocktails, which sometimes turn into dinner! It’s also fun to organize a picnic at Newport Polo or for newportFILM (weekly movies shown outside at incredible locations). In Virginia, we mostly have people to dinner at home.We both love to cook and Michael is a great bartender and DJ. I enjoy growing and arranging my own flowers for the house and table. Our style is casual and easy unless we are having a larger party and then I call in help!

You are a keen supporter of arts and education causes. What keeps you busy these days?
ANNE KLINE POHANKA: I’m taking five different groups of people to see “Magic Flute” at the Kennedy Center, including alumni from my alma mater, Lehigh University. I just started going back toThe Barns atWolfTrap for some shows and whenever I can, I try to catch a performance with theWashington National Opera’sYoungArtists.I also love hosting my W*O*W—Women, Opera, and Wine— events to help my girlfriends learn about opera.

You are known for your belief that small schools make a difference. How do you put that into practice?
GEOFF POHANKA: I am the board chairman and an alumnus of Saint James School in western Maryland, grades 8-12.They offer a great education. It is easier to see one’s impact when giving to a small school.The Pohanka Fine Arts Center will soon open there.

Mary Mochary

Businesswoman, philanthropist and lawyer

You’ve had a fascinating and varied career. What have the highlights been? Born in war-torn Budapest, I’ve been extremely fortunate to live the American dream. I benefited greatly from the women’s movement as first woman mayor of Montclair, N.J., the first woman to be her party’s candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey and the first woman principal deputy legal advisor in the U.S. Department of State. But the thing I’m most proud of are my children, son Matthew and daughter Alexandra, wonderful contributing people making the world a better place.

Your family foundation has a major private art collection. What are your plans to share these works with the public both now and in the future? The art collection, started by my parents, and continually being expanded by myself and my brother, has been exhibited by the Kasser Mochary Foundation in many museums both in the U.S. and abroad.The collection includes works by major 19th- and 20th-century European and North and South American artists (Rodin, Monet, Diego Rivera, Giacometti, Henry Moore, Mary Cassatt, etc.).The Tucson Museum of Art currently has a smaller exhibition and in 2021 we plan a major exhibition at the National Museum of Luxembourg. Between the foundation’s major shows, many works are lent to various museums for specialized exhibitions.

You are generous supporters of many local causes. Which are the most important to you and why? They are all important, from D.C. Humane Rescue to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.We like to come into an organization, shake things up, take them to a new level and let them grow from there. Communities have many different needs, so we go where we are needed.We like to help in many different areas to make the community better as a whole.

How do you describe your entertaining style? It’s all about fun, fun, fun. Nobody wants to go out for just an okay or awkward time. I love putting the ladies together at one end of the table and gentleman at the other. We have our girls/guys night out at the same time and always keep new couples to the group close to each other so they don’t feel awkward.

LaSalle D. (Donney) Leffall, III

Businessman and lawyer

You have a hectic professional, sporting, and social life. What are you focusing on most these days? I travel to Atlanta and New York frequently for my work on the boards of FHLB Atlanta and Mutual of America mutual funds and for business.When home, I am an avid tennis player and enjoy playing at St. Albans Tennis Club and the Chevy Chase Club. Our family would celebrate special occasions at Citronelle (I still miss it) and The Metropolitan Club. I explore the vibrant restaurant scene in our area. Out of town visitors, especially those from London and New York, are surprised at the variety, quality, and reasonableness of prices (the last point proving that everything is relative).

You are following in the footsteps of your parents, LaSalle D. Leffall Jr. and Ruthie Leffall, in supporting many local causes. Which mean the most to you? The National Museum of African American History and Culture,The National Gallery, Howard University, the BishopWalker School and the DC Prep charter school.Why? Educational institutions provide opportunity,the artistic help us appreciate beauty and provide different perspectives,and the spiritual challenge to understand better why we are here and how to live. (Since my days at Beauvoir and St. Albans, Washington National Cathedral has always been special. Perhaps I am atoning for the mischief I caused.At Beauvoir, I was sent to the principal’s office so often, I knew how to operate the phone system).

Eric & Susi Larsen

Eric Larsen is president of the Advisory Board Company,aWashington-based professional services firm that provides research, technology and strategic guidance to the healthcare industry. He also serves as chairman ofWashington National Opera. Susi Larsen, a former real estate executive, focuses on the couple’s three children and various arts organizations including the opera andThe Washington Ballet.

 

You set a major example for your business peer group because of your active involvement in the cultural life of the nation’s capital. What are your favorite causes?

ERIC LARSEN: Our first passion is of course Washington National Opera! We feel so fortunate to have this world-class company at the Kennedy Center. It’s up to us as Washingtonians to ensure its continued vitality and success and it is a joy to help evangelize to a new generation about the beauty of this art form. We are also endlessly inspired by what Julie Kent is doing at The Washington Ballet. She is a Washington treasure.

What describes your entertaining style?

SUSI LARSEN: We love to entertain at our house in McLean and invite a fun, unexpected and diverse combination of friends. We prefer intimate gatherings of 12-14 guests. Occasionally we’ll include an unannounced musical element. Recently we invited three brilliant young artists from the opera’s Domingo-Cafritz program to sing excerpts from Mozart’s “Magic Flute.” I don’t fancy myself much of a cook, so for formal dinners I work with a talented young chef to come up with thematic menus and wine pairings.
