WASHINGTON--Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, husband Todd and daughter Bristol, actress Morgan Fairchild and Olympian Shaun White were part of an eclectic crowd gathered for a brunch before the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner Saturday night.
Palin told me she is giving a speech and will not be able to make the dinner--though her daughter will.
The Georgetown brunch was sponsored by Tammy Haddad and Ted Greenberg; Kevin Sheekey, Hilary Rosen, Mark Ein, Alex Castellanos, Anita Dunn, Bill Knapp, Jim Courtovich, David Adler, Steve McMahon and Franco Nuschese.
Two charities were highlighted and since this is Washington, it should be noted that the leader of one has ties to Democrats and the other to Republicans. The charities: CURE Epilepsy, founded by Susan Axelrod, whose husband, David, is a key Obama advisor and White Ribbon Alliance, overseen by Wendi Murdoch, married to media mogul Rupert.
