Judson Center’s A Night to Embrace

“Cam sent me,” was the password 150 guests used to get into the Speakeasy (aka Corner Bar) back door for the VIP toast preceding the Roaring 20s theme party that celebrated Judson Center’s 1924 opening. Loyalists of the social service agency knew that “Cam” is center CEO Cameron Hosner. They sipped champagne, bought raffle tickets and socialized, pausing for WWJ’s Tom Jordan’s announcement that Scott LaRiche was the lucky winner of the bottle of aged whiskey donated by Heaven Hill Distilleries. They then joined the hoi polloi (400 total) in Club Judson – a festival tent erected at the Townsend’s Merrill Street entrance. It was a jazzy scene with most guests wearing Charleston-era duds, music by Ben Sharkey, two vintage cars on exhibit, premium hooch flowing from the bars and Purple Gangsters (really volunteers) being helpful.
