‘British Invasion’ Underwriters Hosted by Tony Podesta

Beth Kohlhoss and Kay Kendall spearheaded a new initiative of the Women’s Committee of the Washington Ballet to help underwrite the March performance of “British Invasion: the Beatles & the Rolling Stones” at the Kennedy Center. In appreciation, Tony Podesta hosted an April reception at his Kalorama home, where Marsha Muawwad arranged for Patrick Jepson, former private secretary to Princess Diana, to speak of the “joy of dance” as it ran through the princess’s life. From his perspective, Jepson spoke of Diana’s “ability to communicate at an emotional level instinctively” and charmingly noted that Diana “talked to the hearts and tummies of people in the streets.”
