18th annual Hair O’ The Dog Gala Jan. 14 at the Westin Philadelphia at Liberty Place

18th Annual Hair O’ the Dog will be held on January 14, 2012 at The Westin Hotel in Center City, adjacent to Liberty Place.

If you are a long time reader of PCC, you know I love love love this event. This will be the 4th time I attend this event and every year it gets better and better (although I did love it on the boat, the now defunct Belle, last year.) Check in should be smooth, and it will be located in the Rotunda of the Shops at Liberty Place which you can get to via the hotel or parking garage. This year the logistics are much better than on the boat as everything is on one floor, the kitchen at The Westin will be supplying the food stations continuously, and their will be plenty of spirit stations for your libations. (The entrance above. THE HOD has the entire first floor to party on.)

Proceeds from the tickets will go to charity, one of them being The Garden of Reflection, Bucks County’s Sept. 11 memorial site located in Lower Makefield Township. Plus Friends Are By Your Side. “The Garden of Reflection was selected because we believed that the people who suffered extended beyond the city of New York,” said event spokesperson Buffy Morgan. “The Hair O’ The Dog would like to contribute to this beautiful memorial to assist in the upkeep necessary.” Morgan said the Garden of Reflection should receive between $2,500 to $5,000, depending on attendance.One of the VIP lounges
