Photos: Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation Serves Up Sneak Preview of the 2016 Philly Auto Show’s Black Tie Tailgate
Catching up on posts, as you know in December my mother in law passed away, and I got behind on a lot of posts. So this week you’re going to see a lot of December events.
On Wednesday, Dec. 9, the
Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the
Philadelphia Auto Show, kicked off the Show season with the 2016
Black Tie Tailgate Committee Menu Tasting at the home of David and
Marlo Kelleher in Villanova (I wasn’t able to make it but they sent along these photos.) The Tailgate, which benefits the Division
of Neurology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), will
take place Jan. 29, 2016, and provides guests
a preview of all that the Show has to offer before it officially opens on Saturday, Jan. 30. As you know Mike and I always go to the Black Tie Preview Party, it’s a lot of fun, less crowded and you really get a chance to check out all the cars and displays in a relaxed, slower pace atmosphere PLUS there’s delicious food and drinks to be had as you do it.
Open to the public, the 2016 Black Tie Tailgate is a glamorous and exciting first look at the Philadelphia Auto Show. Attendees will enjoy cocktails, gourmet food, and live entertainment among 700 hot production, exotic and antique vehicles
on display at the Show. Black Tie Tailgate tickets start at $225 per person and can be purchased at
phillyautoshow.com/bttg. In 2015, a record 4,500 people helped the event raise $460,000 for CHOP. The Philadelphia Auto Show will take place Jan. 30-Feb. 7, 2016. For more information, please visit
