Mayor Nutter to Donate 2008 Phillies World Series Ring to Philadelphia History Museum’s Baseball Collection
Tonight Mayor and First Lady Nutter will be honored at a special event by the Philadelphia History Museum for their contributions to the city and its history. The first-ever City Social is being held in the museum’s historic building and garden to raise support and awareness for the museum and its exhibitions.
The Museum will recognize Mayor Nutter by gifting him a replica of one of the Museum’s prized artifacts, a wampum belt. In a sort of historical-artifact-swap, Nutter will in turn gift the museum with his own 2008 Phillies World Series Championship ring for their baseball collection. He’ll also give the Museum a hat and T-shirt that the Taney Dragons gave to him after they competed in the 2014 Little League World Series.
Guests of the event will be able to meet and greet Mayor and Mrs. Nutter in the museum garden while sipping on champagne and noshing on hors d’oeuvres from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Afterward, they’ll be treated to foods representing the city’s many neighborhoods and drinks from Dock Street Brewery and Philadelphia Distilling, along with the awards ceremony from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A silent auction and live music will add to the festivities. Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased online.
