An Evening in Franklin Square
presented by


The sixth annual An Evening in Franklin Square was held in the park on Thursday, May 15, 2014 and it was a huge success! Guests gathered in the park for cocktails around the historic fountain, participated in the silent auction, bet on their favorite mount at the Parx Square Derby, and enjoyed the live auction with Beasley Reece, dinner and dancing! It was a night for breaking records: we had a turnout of over 450 guests and we raised over $242,000 for Franklin Square. The funds raised allow Historic Philadelphia, Inc. to continue to preserve this revitalized green space, maintain operation of the park's signature attractions, and offer free family crafts and activities, while in a secure environment. Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event!
