The scoop: Despite last weekends torrential rains, more than 400 costumed revelers showed up for the annual blowout. Newie and Dr. Mark Brinker joined Laurie and Tracy Krohn in chairing the event that raised close to $200,000.
Nonstop music was provided by Skyrocket! and DJ Senega, which meant a dance floor packed with everyone from Mozart to Darth Vader, from Tom Cruise's Top Gun to Pope Francis. Each year, this proves to be THE Halloween party for serious costuming.
Who: Allison Hunter and Kenneth Finch, Tammy and Shane Shepperd, Kim and Anthony Saragusa, Amy and Mike Hines, Jennifer and Jeff Brennan, Jeff Dunn, Katie Sherbourne, Larry Granger and Gil Lezalde.
