An Evening in Franklin Square
presented by


On Thursday, May 19, 2016, Historic Philadelphia, Inc. (HPI) hosted the eighth annual An Evening in Franklin Square presented by Parx Casino. Thank you to the leadership of generous sponsors and a tremendous volunteer planning committee, the event raised more than $260,000 to support the operation of this treasured park. The evening was spectacular – from perfect weather to the added atmosphere of the Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival. We were thrilled to welcome familiar faces and new friends to a particularly special celebration.
