The annual celebration by the Friends of Rittenhouse is arranged in order to collect the much needed funds for maintaining the famous square. The 2016 ball was set to raise one million dollars for a preservation success and unsurprisingly, they were easily able to meet the goal.
The Young Friends of Rittenhouse Square Ball on the Square was especially arranged for the young professionals aged 21 – 35 years old. It includes a cocktail party at a hotel or a restaurant and moves on to a silent auction after 8 PM and ends at 10:30 PM. Later on, the Young Friends Ball merges with the main ball on the Square for unlimited dancing and desserts.
The invitations are all sent out usually during mid spring. The event itself is held every year on the third Thursday of June. The event is the perfect place to bond with strangers, neighbors and friends. This is definitely the most glamorous black tie outdoor party in town. People are usually waiting anxiously for their invitations and find it an honor to receive one!
With so much glamor, beauty and class going around how can a photo booth be missing. Of course it can’t – and the best Philadelphia photo booth took the stage throughout the party. A gorgeous ball arranged with such heart needed souvenirs – something to take home after all the madness and fun. And what better souvenir can there be than a photo booth shoot with all your new and old friends. While you pose around and go completely crazy and creative with all the props provided, you can be rest assured that no other person will be questioning your sanity because of the enclosed booth. Why should you even hire a photographer when people can just go to a photo booth, go wild, have fun and immediately get their pictures so they can go home and show off to their family and friends?
What’s the point of dressing up so much if you can’t even have a photo of yourself telling you just how stunning you were looking on that particular night? This is one of those parties where people dance, throw away their shoes to dance some more, and then walk home barefoot with the new best buddy they made at the ball.
This years’ ball had improved security, increased lighting, a clean and restored balustrade and also an illuminated guardhouse, not to mention the lion! The only thing left now is the restoration of the beautiful fountain – fingers crossed for next year!
This ball summarizes both class and glamor into one party no one can walk away from. The Young Friends of Rittenhouse Square Ball on the Square is the perfect opportunity to mix with people and boosting your social life immensely!
