Wine in the Winter

Emerging Leaders United – United Way of Central Maryland’s young professionals group of supporters – threw its annual winter party, warming up a chilly night with good wine, good food and good friends.

Guests gathered at the Baltimore Visitor Center at Harborplace for the shindig, which – this year – had a masquerade theme.
As a special treat, the crowd was entertained by Austin Ellis, a contestant in season 6 of “The Voice.”
