The Friends of Rittenhouse Square’s annual Ball on the Square was held Thursday, June 16 at the Square. The Ball is arguably the most glamorous party of the spring season and among the square’s most important fundraising events of the year, raising much needed funds to support the beautification and restoration of the popular park. Co-chairs of the Ball Robyn Lewison and Faith Weiss headed a committee of volunteers to create a magical evening. More than 500 guests enjoyed a cocktail party, dinner by Stephen Starr Events, and the Eddie Bruce Band kept the dance floor filled into the wee hours of the night. Evantine Design captured the beauty of summer with the decorations and also added a touch of rainbow color to the tents to pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando shootings earlier in the week. The Young Friends of Rittenhouse enjoyed a party of their own at the Stotesberry Mansion, before heading across the street to join the main party at The Square at 10:30PM. Co-chairs for the Young Friends party were Jennifer Laurel Brown, Peter Dilsheimer, Victoria Johnston and Cory Siegfried.
