Beach Ball


Happy Campers

The big-shot contingent was out in full force for the Beach Ball, the annual benefit for Camp Harbor View, which was held at the Black
Falcon Cruise Terminal

Cocktails were served outside, with AstroTurf, furniture and makeshift Tiki bars, while a Boston fireboat put on a show with its hoses.

Front and center: founder Jack Connors and his co-hosts, MGH president Peter Slavin and energy executive Joseph Nolan, U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey, incorrigible scamp Paul Karger and his gorgeous fiance, Melissa Donovan, ad exec Tracy McArdle Brady and her bearded hipster husband, Nat Brady, real estate titan Steve Weiner and the flawless Roberta, car czar Herb Chambers, construction mogul John Fish and the lovely Cindy, banking imp Rick Musiol, restaurateur Darryl Settles, Channel 4 hottie Lisa Hughes, UMass president Marty Meehan, uber-philanthropists Elaine and Gerry Schuster, unfairly gorgeous couple Jenny Johnson and Rob Cocuzzo and lots of other A-listers.

Dinner was followed by a performance from Grammy-winning trumpeter Chris Botti and dancing into the wee hours.

Best remark: When someone mentioned that the evening was on track to raise more than $8 million, one guest said, “Personally, I hated summer camp. I am apparently in the minority.”
