Philadelphia’s Cory Wade, best known as being the second runner-up on America’s Next Top Model, is lending his hosting talents for a local event celebrating Adoptions From the Heart’s 30th anniversary.

The “Building Beautiful Futures” event will be held on Friday, October 16 at the Philadelphia Racquet Club, and will feature cocktails, food, casino games, a photo booth, raffles, and live entertainment. Of course, this is all for a good cause: The evening celebrates Adoptions From the Heart, which has assisted over 6,500 families in their 30 year history, and proceeds will benefit the Birthparent Scholarship Fund.

The organization, which was “founded on the principles of open adoption,” was established in Executive Director Maxine Chalker’s basement. They now have eight offices.

Wade himself has a special connection to adoption: His mother was adopted (although not from Adoptions From the Heart), so he’s always had a passion for spreading the word about the importance  these organizations have for families.

Tickets to the October event are $45 and include two drink tickets and casino cops. If you purchase a group of four or more tickets, the price drops to $40 each. For more information, click here.
