The Oscars-themed “And the Winner Is” benefited Tracy’s Kids, a charity providing art therapists to children with terminal illnesses and their families. One of the red carpet hosts was Karen Pence, painter and wife of Vice President Mike Pence. At the Feb. 26 event at Lucky Strikes in Chinatown, Pence was introduced by her friend Marcelle Leahy, wife of Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), who has served on the board of Tracy’s Kids since its inception in 1991 at Georgetown University Hospital’s Lombardi Center by Tracy Councill, the charity’s namesake. After the reception, which also included Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), guests were treated to screenings of Academy Award nominated films at Regal Cinemas Gallery Place.
