CITYCENTER -- Notwithstanding a personal appearance by Queen Hippolyta herself, Thursday evening was perhaps just about as close to becoming a Washingtonian's real life midsummer night's dream, with temperatures comfortably holding in the upper 70s and nary a cloud present above.

Such was the backdrop at least surrounding the already picturesque structures that makeup CityCenterDC, the District's newest upscale neighborhood.

However, the stylish folks spotted milling about CityCenter's well manicured inner plaza on Thursday night were in for a double treat beyond the perfect weather, as the occasion also served as a chic summer celebration hosted by Capitol File Magazine.

Inspired by the colorful, hand-painted artwork that renowned artist Peter Max had created for the magazine's latest issue, the guest list-only affair invited a lucky group of D.C. influencers to enjoy a decidedly alfresco evening surrounded by some of the finer things in life.

On one end of the grounds sat a sparkling new Maserati convertible courtesy of Criswell Automotive, while a crisp white bar pouring seemingly bottomless glasses of Moet & Chandon champagne anchored the other side.

Restaurateur Richard Sandoval's upscale Thai concept, Mango Tree, which will soon open its doors in CityCenter, along with D.C.-based dessert company Rare Sweets, had been enlisted to satisfy everyone's appetites.

And Events by Andre Wells and florist MultiFlor ensured that the event was as well executed as it was visually impressive.

Attendees were given a heartfelt welcome by Capitol File Publisher Suzy Jacobs, CityCenter General Manager Timothy Lowery, and Humane Society of the United States President & CEO Wayne Pacelle.

Pacelle's remarks were particularly noteworthy, as it reminded everyone about the charitable significance of Peter Max's collaboration this summer with Niche Media (parent company of Capitol File).

Beyond the company's D.C. support base, readers from nine other cities have been enlisted as part of a nation-wide fundraising effort. The one-of-a-kind paintings that served as the template for each of the 10 participating publications' most recent covers are in the process of being auctioned-off online, with proceeds earmarked for the Humane Society.
