Atmosphere PIXS & Link To Philly Mag: Garces Family Foundation Gala at Kimmel Center

 Puentes de Salud is an organization that has long been committed to the
wellness of Philadelphia’s immigrant community. The funds raised at last
night’s event will be used to build a community center to house the
many services that Puentes de Salud provides.

 Most people I asked loved Amada the best with J.G. DOMESTIC coming in 2nd.

 Chefs on the hors d’oeuvres line

 The new Dorrance H. Hamilton Rooftop Garden
 This was everyone’s favorite dish: hmmm good Perre Calmels, Bibou – Venison Pithiviers
With Michael Solomonov’s Halibut in Brik, Artichoke, Tomato and Black Harissa coming in 2nd
The Commonwealth Plaza. I loved how the VIP Dinner was going on upstairs, but a hot party was happening here. 
 Both parties commingled after 9:30PM into a big dance party.
Amazing job by Corie Moskow & her team at Gloss PR (none are pictured in this shot)
 “Last fall, Jonathan Adams, one of Philadelphia’s best chefs, and Damien Pileggi, an artisanal coffee expert, launched Rival Bros Coffee. (FooBooz)
