Celebration of Rhea Feikin

Many of Rhea Feikin’s family and closest friends filled the private dining room of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse to honor “the first lady of MPT” and to celebrate her decades of work on Baltimore television in advance of her retirement in February 2020.

Guests first enjoyed a cocktail hour…
…before being welcomed to dinner by Larry D. Unger, MPT president/CEO and party host.
Among those feting this First Lady – her dear friend, filmmaker and artist John Waters.
