Guests donned their best ’20s garb for a good cause

The roaring twenties were in full swing on Saturday, April 6, at Philadelphia’s Union League. Hundreds of partygoers showed up to support the Alzheimer’s Association of the Delaware Valley Inaugural Gatsby Gala. The event honored Spike Eskin of CBS Sports, who has been a longtime supporter of the organization. Other special guests included Kathy Romano of WMMR’s Preston and Steve Show, Ms. Delaware International and Brian Quinn of the Philly rock band Octane.
