On the evening of Saturday, March 1st, Friends of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia hosted Cheers for CHOP at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia.

The event began with guests walking the red carpet into a cocktail reception where there was an expansive silent auction underway as well as butlered hors d’oeuvre and carving stations. Guests had the opportunity to bid on gift certificates to nearly every notable area restaurant you could think of, as well as spa treatments and sporting experiences.




After the cocktail hour, guests were whisked into the two-level dance floor of Seven The Nightclub where DJ Bizz from CTO Soho entertained the crowd — with the exception of a surprise performance by Rob “It Takes Two” Base, who sang his biggest hits backed by Kyle Rifkin.

The proceeds from the evening went to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment, and the Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care.
