2015 Black Tie Tailgate Gala Sponsor Party at the soon to be open “Olde Bar” at the Old Original Bookbinder’s

I was scheduled to shoot this event last week, but at the last minute a client needed me to shoot a gig for them. Every year I attend the 2015 Philadelphia Auto Show pre-view party. The pre-view party which is held the night before, is a glamorous black tie event that raises money for charity, Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. At the event you’ll enjoy the latest cars, taste the most delicious food from Jose Garces and Aramark, enjoy dancing and dessert in the Grand Hall. These photos are of the sponsor party, where sponsors of the gala and car show gather to meet and mingle, and taste the food that’s going to be served at gala, sorta like when you get married and you have a tasting with event hall. I was so disaponited to miss it cause I knew it was in the newly acquired Jose Garces space at the Old Original Bookbinders, so I wanted shots. You can kinda see from these photos what the space looks like. These pixs were provided by the Phila Auto Show.


The 2015 Philadelphia Auto Show, produced and
owned by the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia,
rolls into the Pennsylvania Convention Center Jan. 31 to Feb. 8. This
year’s event will have hundreds of vehicles from a variety of worldwide
manufacturers. Highlights include an array of concept, classic, luxury,
pre-production and exotic models. Ticket prices range from $6 to $13.
