presented by


Building on the momentum of a very successful sixth annual An Evening in Franklin Square and a fun-filled holiday season, plans are underway for Historic Philadelphia, Inc. (HPI) to host the seventh annual An Evening in Franklin Square presented by Parx Casino, Thursday, May 19, 2016. The event has become a special tradition for the park and for the City, and we hope that you will consider joining us this spring. Money raised during this annual fundraising extravaganza will help HPI maintain the safe and welcoming green space, signature attractions and free programming. In 2015, An Evening in Franklin Square will begin at 5:30 pm with cocktails, silent auction and the suspenseful Square Derby presented by Parx Casino, followed by dinner, live auction and dancing.
