Schmooze Your Heart Out

Has the daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. grind got you down? Ditch those ties and pencil skirts for something a little … sexier. Enjoy a night of music, drinks and fun this Thursday evening at this year’s Young Professionals Ball.

Hosted by Gwen Gioia, formerly of ABC’s The Bachelor, Miss Pennsylvania USA Samantha Johnson, and two-time Survivor contestant Stephenie LaGrossa, this year’s event boasts three things yuppies love: 1.) multiple bars with drink specials, 2.) multiple dance floors (featuring the live beats of DJ Caliph-NOW) and 3.) multiple opportunities to meet other young, successful and ridiculously good-looking professionals.

The $15 ticket supports Fox Chase Cancer Center research, and also buys you a taste of dishes from the Square on Square Restaurant, DiBruno’s hors d’oeuvres, and p.i.n.k. Vodka cocktails, so there’s no need to feel guilty about parting with your hard-earned cash. Just make sure to tuck a few business cards into that little black bag … you never know who you’ll meet.


September 21st, 6:00 p.m., Mansion on Rittenhouse Square, 121 South 19th Street;
