The Arden’s biennial gala, clinic the Granfalloon, took place on Friday, June 11. Over 300 guests gathered at the Comcast Center, the tallest building in Philadelphia, for a rousing evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing. The event was held in honor of N. Peter Hamilton, a longtime Arden board members and supporter of Arden Children’s Theatre and Arden for All.
The evening began on the 43rd floor in Ralph’s Café where guests enjoyed the exquisite view, as well as small plate dining, cocktails, and a silent auction.
Guests then moved down to the Winter Garden lobby, where special guests Joilet Harris, Steve Pacek and Alex Keiper performed with rhythm and blues band, LeRoy Hawkes and the Hipnotics. Guests enjoyed the music and sumptuous desserts, bid on the live and silent auctions and danced the night away.
