On May 26th, Parx Casino joined Historic Philadelphia Inc. in presenting the 7th annual “An Evening in Franklin Square” to benefit efforts to sustain the celebrated park. Guests dressed in garden-party attire, participated in the silent auction and enjoyed cocktails. One of the highlights of the cocktail hour was when guests participated in the Parx Square Derby, a carousel race, that was narrated by racing announcer Keith Jones. The race was followed by a dinner, live auction, and plenty of dancing.
