The friends and family of two Philadelphia political titans closed out the holiday party season last week.
Former STATE SEN. BOB ROVNER hosted another outstanding holiday party at Colleen’s in Palmyra, N.J. Philadelphia DA SETH WILLIAMS threw down on the dance floor with his lovely date STACY. Also dancing the night away was accountant extraordinaire WALT SCHWANK and the beautiful MARYANN SCHWANK. Former President Judge of Common Pleas Court ALEX BONAVITACOLA was on hand with his lovely wife. JUDGE FAY STACK spent quality time with TONYA STACK. And retired judge JOHN POSERINA enjoyed the company of many well-wishers. Sen. Rovner had a tremendous band that played dance music and Christmas carols. He danced with many of his guests but shared his best dances for his striking executive assistant HANNA MONBLATT. Super attorneys STEVE and DAN ROVNER (the host’s sons) conversed with their uncle and also outstanding lawyer HOWARD ROVNER.
Just because STATE SEN. VINCE FUMO is still the guest of the federal government, does not mean the party can’t go on. His beautiful fiancée hosted a well-attended holiday bash at the Green Street mansion. On hand were conductor PETER NERO, NINO TINARI, the lovely CAROL TINARI and their daughter NINA. LELAND BELOFF chatted with SEAN REILLY. JUDGE GENE MAIER chatted with JOE RUSSO. Philadelphia Gay News Editor MARK SEGAL hung out with Aqua America CEO NICK DeBENEDICTIS.
Fire Fighters Union Local 22 made Christmas Day a happy celebration for a six-year-old boy from Kingsport, Tenn. and his family which has been split apart for the past two years, due to his need to be doctored at CHOP in Philadelphia. Awaiting heart- and double lung-transplant surgery at Children’s Hospital, WESTON KEETON was reunited with all the members of his family at a party hosted for them at Firefighters Hall, with Santa Claus dropping in for a moment to do his usual. The occasion brought his mother JULIE, dad ADAM and six other siblings together for a party full of Christmas music, food and drink. It also brought together the family which has been torn in two, while Weston was at CHOP from Jun. 1, 2011 until November 2012. His mother and two siblings lived at the Gift of Life Family House in Philadelphia. Dad and four of the children remained in Tennessee. The family feels DR. BRIAN HANNA, of CHOP, was the reason Weston was alive and able to enjoy the party Christmas Day.
