Dick and Donna Soloway

Ghouls, ghosts, and goblins galore with a touch of glitz and glam—Donna and Richard Soloway did the scariest night of the year proud with their Halloween Bash at the Union Ballroom. The more than 250 guests, many who jetted in just for this event, included Ivana Trump, Cynthia and Tony Maltese, Cornelia and Marty Bregman, Francine LeFrak and Rick Friedberg, Denise Rich, Barbara de Portago, Ada and Daniel de Maurier, Geoffrey Bradfield, Tina Flaherty, Peter and Dana Catalano, Princess Rochelle and Prince Federico Pignatelli, Nikki Haskell, Alain Nemarq and Jacqueline Guinot, and Dr. Georgia Witkin and Michael Tadross—all dancing the night away to the tunes of DJ “Vlad.” Donna Soloway designed an elegant, gothic-style dinner with a frighteningly intricate table seating.

Guests arrived in mandatory costume to compete for the brilliantly named “Morticia Awards.” Just four days before the national election, Joan Jedell transformed herself to uncannily resemble the nouveau politicienne Sarah Palin, reminding us all that a Palin vice-presidency is the one thought scarier than a spooky Halloween.
