2012 BrewHaHa; St. Anthony's Hospital Auxiliary Diamond Jubilee

10.20.2012

Halloween is still a few days off, but guests at the 2012 BrewHaHa had a spooktacular time at St. Petersburg's Rutland-Farley estate, where the elaborate decor included a Gothic mermaid in the pool. There were fire cannons on the roof, fire dancers on the lawn and even members of the Hoola Monsters performing with rings of fire, plus glowing paddle boarders and an ice luge.

Patrons spend lots of time and creative energy on their costumes for the fundraiser, which benefits the ChairScholars Foundation, a charity that provides scholarships for college or vocational training to low-income children who have serious physical disabilities. Program director Carroll Vick reports that nearly 400 guests attended this year's event, which raised enough money to finance 21 of those scholarships.

Once again, Phil and Michele Farley were hosts for the event, and ChairScholars founders Dr. Hugo and Alicia Keim were on hand for the fun. Major sponsors, otherwise known as "Masters of the Mansion," were MarineMax, Pegasystems and the Octavia Foundation.

The planning committee included Suzanne Trezevant Alvarez, Janine Awai, Joanna Braddock, Casey Trezevant Cathey, Deborah Dowling, Michele Farley, Alicia Keim, Diana Nieves-Oake, Celeste Noren, Nikki Soda, Jaclyn Turner and Carroll Vick.

St. Anthony's Hospital Auxiliary marked its 60th anniversary Diamond Jubilee with a celebratory luncheon at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club, and a number of doctors and other personnel who are affiliated with the hospital stole the show, figuratively speaking, modeling fashions from Chico's and Sacino's.

Rays senior adviser Dick Crippen was master of ceremonies for the event. Event chair Pat Howells led a committee that included Susanna Bellafante, Mozelle Bell, Maly Carlomagno, Roseanna Costa, Mary Delano-Newport, Sara Galiger, Ethelyn Hendersion, Noreen Hodges, Charlotte Krizek, June Wedding, Connie Whitehead, Diane Winstin and Roberta Yancey.

And those runway models? St. Anthony's president Bill Ulbricht; board of trustees chairman Michael Mikurak; vice president of operations Ronald Colaguori; physicians Cecele Murphy, Paul Steve Collins, Brian Cotter, Jeffrey Paonessa and Dwight Valentine; and community volunteers Joann Barger, Paula Blanda, Karol Bullard, Arlette Ferguson, Barbara Paonessa, Maritza Smith and Sarah Williams.
