We had a gay ole time at the official Academy Award sanctioned viewing event in DC at the Hard Rock Cafe. There was a huge silent auction with some amazing products and a live auctioning off of a beautiful Gibson Guitar signed by the boys of the band O.A.R. The event was hosted by DC blogger Pamela Sorensen pictured with Arch Campbell and CEO of the Red Cross NCA Linda Mathes, and Pamela Brown of DC's News Channel 8 (photo 5). Among the special guests were, Arch Campbell (pictured with the Pamelas), Mrs. DC Kate Marie Grinold with Carl Becker (second photo) and Michael Saylor with Kelly Work (fourth photo). Also pictured below is co-hostess and shoe designer Lacey Kirstein with the lovely Jan Cousteau.
