Party People: Philly Magazine Hosts it’s Annual Best of Philly Party

Last week Philadelphia Magazine held their annual Best of Philly party at Dilworth Park.

The ticketed event was sold out, and the crowds stayed despite the oppressive heat and brief showers.

Business leaders, taste-makers, fashionista’s, publicists and their clients, and entrepreneurs attended the event, which has been held on Dilworth Plaza for the past few years. Not a bad idea for publicists to attend with their clients, as there is a lot of press on hand to capture the night. Follow my #PhillyPrTip advice on Twitter.

Jim Dever, BOA Market President for Philadelphia, Dr. Lynn Dever, and newly weds Rachel Dever and Pierce Dever
who just tied the knot 90 days ago.

Spacious Dilworth Park allows for many different activation’s to occur during the party
