Philadelphia Fund Alliance Gala Benefited Take A Breather Foundation

More than 200 Philadelphia-area asset management industry professionals gathered on Nov. 1 at The Logan Philadelphia to raise money for Take A Breather Foundation and to celebrate Philadelphia’s deep roots in national financial markets and services.

The Philadelphia Fund Alliance is a group of Philadelphia-based asset management industry professionals formed to hold an annual fundraiser to benefit one or more charities in the greater Philadelphia area. The annual fundraiser not only supports a great cause, but it also will highlight Philadelphia’s deep roots and influence in national financial markets and services, including traditional mutual funds and alternative asset vehicles. Through our annual event, we will raise money for a local charity and, as an ancillary benefit, we will raise awareness about our collective accomplishments and milestones in the asset management industry.
