Media types like NBC’s Luke Russert, Bloomberg’s Susan Roberts, Examiner’s Tara Palmeri, CBS’ Meredith Stencil, USA Today’s Rebecca Heslin, Pamela’s Punch blogger Pamela Sorensen, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, Washington Life’s Michael Clements and blogger Allison Priebe Brooks spent Saturday night under the stars on the National Mall for the L’Enfant Society’s second annual “Ball on the Mall.”

The sold-out event, boasting a beautiful clear tent, dinner, dancing and plenty of drinks offered journalists the perfect venue to mix and mingle with celeb-types and the city’s young movers and shakers. And though Whitney Houston who was rumored to make an appearance, didn’t show, Ricky Schroder did.

Addressing the dinner, the Silver Spoons star said, “I didn’t even know this was a problem until someone told me,” and then promised a tent full of guests, including the Mexican Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan, that he’d tell more celebrities about the organization and their efforts to restore and improve the National Mall.

The event raised $350,000, exceeding its goal by $130K.

DC Magazine Changes

Kate Ancieri, the features editor of DC magazine, has left the magazine after her husband took a job as a counselor at Harvard in Cambridge.

The magazine has hired George Stone, a former National Geographic Traveler staff writer and freelance writer. “He’s covered the hottest kitchens and coolest night spots in DC for eight years,” DC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Karen Sommer Shalett tells FishbowlDC. “His food and travel background is priceless to us.”

They’ve also hired Kate Roseblatt as a senior editor. She starts April 30. “Hailing from a former spot at FHM magazine in Manhattan,
she’ll be our stiletto-ed feet on the street,” Shalett says. “Kate has covered DC and Baltimore for several years and she’ll be popping up everywhere from the best boutiques to the chicest cocktail parties. A reporter at heart, she’s a trend-spotter with an eye for finds like the bracelets boy about town Omar Popal designed for his wait staff at Cafe Bonaparte and the most au currant accoutrements for the home.”

Associate Editor Rebecca Heslin will also take a bigger lead on DC Magazine’s social coverage and local fashion.
