Under The Big Top with Resources for Human Development

Resources for Human Development (RHD) hosted their annual fun -raiser Philly Pours back in-person this year! This years theme was a fun-filled night under the big top on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at 6 pm. Guests were greeted with a fun and whimsical circus theme at City Winery located in the Philadelphia Fashion District. This year’s event featured corks (wine) and crafts (craft beer) to indulge your senses.

There was a roving magician to delight the crowd with the sleight of hand tricks. ( I love a good party, especially a themed party)
