Philadelphia Parks Alliance Annual Fundraiser at Reading Terminal Market
I am honored to be on the event committee of the Philadelphia Parks Alliance’s Celebration 2014, its annual fundraiser that this year will take place on Sunday, November 16 at Reading Terminal Market. Parks are part of what make Philly great. And the Parks Alliance are part of what makes Philly's parks great. So if you are a lover of Philly and its parks, you should support the Parks Alliance.
The event will run from 6pm to 9pm, with a special pre-event tour of Reading Terminal Market starting at 4:30pm. Kids are welcome (my two will be there), and among other activities there will be a silent auction (always fun for window shopping or real shopping).
I may be hitting some of you up individually, but here’s three big group asks:
(1) Buy a ticket. This is easy. Tickets are $100, or $150 if you want in on the tour.
(2) Donate an item for the silent auction. If you or your company has access to in-kind contributions, like a gift certificate for your restaurant, a product from your store, tickets to a sporting event or cultural performance, or a vacation home, please consider sharing it with the Parks Alliance.
(3) Be a sponsor. Sponsorships start at $500 and are a great way to connect your company to a great cause. My firm is a sponsor.
