The 32nd Annual Ball On The Square
Last night, The Friends of Rittenhouse Square and Arthur Wolk (The Wolk Law Firm) & Boo (the law firm’s house pooch) hosted the 32nd annual Ball on The Square. A record number of people attended the soiree, which sold out by June 1. Over 400 well-dressed guests attended, dining on Starr Events Catering and listening to the Eddie Bruce Orchestra while surrounded by the beautiful decor of Evantine Design, all to raise funds for the popular park.
The annual celebration brings much-needed funds for the maintenance of the well-liked square; last night was especially sweet as the Friends of Rittenhouse Square announced that they have raised $1.6 million in the past 3 years from the galas. The evening’s gala was held around one of the benefits of these galas — The Duck Lady Fountain — which has been restored and was flowing freely last night. Other improvements included increased lighting, security cameras, the restored and cleaned balustrade, and the illuminated guardhouse and lion.
