The Beaux Arts Bash was held at the Philadelphia Free Library last month
The annual black-tie event highlighted the Parkway’s splendid history of art and architecture inspired by the Beaux -Arts movement in turn-of-the-century France.
The live auction was led by Reggie Rivers, a former Denver Broncos player who is now a professional auctioneer, broadcaster and motivational speaker.
Guests also enjoyed a silent auction with great sports memorabilia.
Funds raised by the gala event support the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation, which makes possible many Free Library programs and services that advance literacy, guide learning, and inspire curiosity throughout Philadelphia.
