On Friday a slew of Philly beer-loving do-gooders gathered for a friendly Flip Cup Championship that raised funds for both the Gay Bowl Committee and National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The event was organized by Penn 6 and Field House rep Tim Adams, who wrote on Facebook that, “Two-hundred people packed the Upstairs Loft [of Field House] and we were able to write Gay Bowl and MS Society checks rounding up at $2,000 each.” That’s a lot of cup-flipping.

After the jump, some photos of the rowdy occasion from our pal HughE Dillon, and photographer Jenna Herman..
