The Ronald McDonald House got its start thirty years ago in Philadelphia. On Friday, October 15th, swarms of black-tie clad supporters came to the anniversary gala fundraiser held at the Park Hyatt Bellevue hotel. There are now over 240 Ronald McDonald House programs around the world - there for the support and wellbeing of the youngest patients and their families.
 
Sharon and Joe McGinley of Ardmore hosted a cocktail party for the Center for Child Advocacy. The non-profit organization, founded in 1977, is the country's oldest and largest pro bono legal and social services agency for children. Their mission is to secure a safe and loving home for children who are neglected, abused, and living in otherwise dangerous situations. You can volunteer through www.advokid.org.
 
The Print Center hosted an opening party for their most recent exhibition featuring Re-Pose by Isaac Diggs, Photoplay by Jenny Lynn, and For You by Liliana Porter. The artists were on hand for questions and conversation as patrons milled about the galleries, wines in hand.
 
The National Constitution Center presented William Coleman with an award for a lifetime of achievement in civic engagement on Saturday, September 23rd. Mr. Coleman started his career as Secretary of Transportation under President Ford and went on to work in law, business and public service. Coleman was presented the award by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, with an introduction by Peter Jennings of ABC News. Granddaughter, Flavia Colgan (you know her as a political analyst on MSNBC) was on hand as well. Proceeds from the awards dinner will benefit educational programming at the National Constitution Center.
 
The Philadelphia Orchestra opened the season at the Kimmel Center on Tuesday, September 21st with a concert and dinner gala despite patrons' worries that the musical portion of the evening would not get underway due to union negotiations. Happily, we can report that the concert was right on schedule, and was wonderful, with Christoph Eschenbach conducting and famed soprano, Renee Fleming trilling and thrilling all.
