Event a ‘bright’ idea

For today, I am devoting space to photos instead of details from Saturday’s first-time “Jazzy Jeans and Jewels” held at the Hellenic Hall in Steubenville to benefit the Jefferson County Fourth Street Health Center. Check out Wednesday’s community page for a little more info.

Here are some highlights, though, of the event co-chaired by Janet Sharpe and Patricia Fletcher;

–There were approximately 200 in attendance for what was an evening of food, music and fun.

— The goal was to raise $5,000. The grand total raised was $5,501.

— Patrons were to dress up in blingy jeans and outfits, and many did. A panel of judges selected eight sparkly, jazzy dressers to see who could collect the most $1 votes, an effort won by Gretchen Heizler of New Cumberland. She brought in $367.

— There were 17 “celebrity chefs” who provided and served a variety of food.

— This event will be back next year, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a little more commentary.
