David Goodman, founder and president of Auction Results, works the room at the gala. Entertaining with his fast talk accompanied by crowd-pleasing magic tricks, Goodman facilitated what he calls “competitive bidding” during a live auction, that raised significant funds for the orchestra.

Trust people who wear formal attire as their uniform, and those who direct and administer their efforts, to know how to put on a gala. Sunday, April 21, was the night of the McLean Orchestra’s annual fundraiser held at the Hilton Tysons Corner. Themed “Midnight in Paris” from reception start through a dinner that included a live auction, acknowledgements and awards, and finally dancing to the tunes of Ed Witles The Elegant DJ, the black-tie evening was as well-arranged, conducted and received as any of the musical performances for which the orchestra is known.
