There were a few familiar faces at New England Baptist Hospital’s annual gala, held the other night at the Intercontinental Hotel, none more recognizable than three-time Super Bowl champ Tedy Bruschi and former Celtic Walter McCarty. . . . Kelly Clarkson, who’s in town to perform Thursday with Keith Lockhart and the Pops at Northeastern, did a meet-and-greet with a few MIX 104.1 listeners Wednesday. Though the singer celebrated her 31st birthday last week, DJs Gregg Daniels, Fast Freddy, and Sue Brady threw Clarkson a little party that included an impressive cake. . . . Actor Michael J. Fox and cosmetics company magnate Leonard Lauder were among 400 who attended Wednesday’s funeral in Portland for philanthropist Al Glickman. Glickman had given millions of dollars to schools and served on the board of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. . . . Patriots owner Robert Kraft was spied in the crowd at the Bruins’s playoff opener Wednesday.
