Ina Drew has kept a low profile since she left JPMorgan Chase last year after the bank’s multibillion-dollar trading loss.

But Ms. Drew, former head of JPMorgan’s chief investment office, was mingling with the elite of Wall Street on Tuesday evening at a gala honoring her old boss, William B. Harrison Jr., once the chairman and chief executive of JPMorgan.

The annual event held at the Museum of American Finance in Manhattan attracted a number of old-school Wall Street celebrities, among them John C. Whitehead, the leader of Goldman Sachs in the 1970s and 1980s, and William H. Donaldson, a former head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The gala, which coincided with the centennial of the Federal Reserve, raised $750,000 for the museum, the most ever, said David J. Cowen, the museum’s head.
