We had a great night last night at the beautiful Georgetown home of Rick Rickersten.   Built in 1799, it is truly one of the most spectacular homes in DC.   It was the perfect venue for a superb party.

The event was an Academy Awards viewing party, hosted by Moet Chandon, to benefit the Five & Alive Charity.  Founded by the wonderful Kate Roberts, Five & Alive is a Population Services program that provides children and their families with information about education, products and services to improve health and to help save lives in over 30 countries.

Five & Alive primarily targets youth five years old and under to help them prevent and treat malaria, water-borne illnesses, pneumonia and malnutrition.   This program is  the sister program of YouthAIDS, the highly effective initiative founded by Kate Roberts in 2001.   To learn more about these programs, please go to http://projects.psi.org.

As for the party, it was full of Washington, DC’s social elite … people were dressed in “red-carpet attire” … it was a fun-filled evening … and most of the crowd seemed to be happy that “Slumdog Millionaire” swept the awards show!
