Every week, one of our photographer colleagues goes to a party for a regular feature in the Sunday Style section called The Scene. This week, photojournalist Evy Mages went to the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium for the annual gala for Cause, a military nonprofit group that provides programs and support for service members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Want to invite a photographer to your party? Email them at thescene@washpost.com.
