Tuesday – #SaveTheDatePHL – Events You Might Want to Attend

So often when I post events I shoot, people tell me they wish they knew about such and such event beforehand. And even though I constantly promote most events on social media, we all know there’s a crush of info out there, as well as the algorithms that screw up the timelines. So I started something earlier this year where I compile a list of events that i think you might want to attend. I thought it would be clever to post it on Tuesday, like “To Do Tuesday”, and in the meantime you can also click on the hashtag #SaveTheDatePHL on Twitter, FB or Instagram and check out events there as well.

Hello Spring….

The Party – Don’t Take Your Organs With You!!


This Friday March 29, 2019 at The Bellevue Hotel, Philadelphia
This annual event is an evening of celebration, dancing,and tasting the best from our region’s top restaurants and vendors.  The money raised at this event  funds public education programs to increase awareness about the critical need for organ and tissue donors in our region, especially among young people and in the clergy and multicultural communities.

I really love this party, it’s laid back, fun, great music, fun people and lots of dancing oh and did I mention the dessert table – all for a noble cause. This is one of my choices where if you only attend one or two events a year, this is a must do. INFO

Woof Definitely One of the Most Heartwarming Events of the Year. Reuniting Dog and the Soldiers they bonded with overseas.

No Dog Gets Left Behind provides financial support to reunite military personnel with the stray animals they found and bonded with while at war – a $5,000-per-dog expenditure that includes vaccines, medical treatment, transportation and more. While the financial investment is high, the relief, comfort and joy this program provides soldiers is immeasurable. To date we have funded over 60+ soldier/dog reunions. TICKETS HERE

Chit Chat and Links to Events I Shot This Week

It’s Spring Social Season and the events are picking up. Going forward on Saturday’s I will post links to events I cover this past week that appear on my outlets CBS, Philly Style, Philly Voice, Philly Business Journal etc.

Alvin Ailey Troupe’s 60th Anniversary Celebration took place last Friday night at the Academy of Music after the shows first night. The sold out performance thrilled the audience, and many of them headed to the ballroom after the show to enjoy a Garces Events lite catering, and to meet and mingle with the dancers. Check out CBSPhilly and PhillyStyle for additional photos. Some photos may appear in May’s issue of Philly Mag as well.

The Flower Show is still happening at the Pa Convention Center through tomorrow. Friday night I photographed the the annual black tie gala. Check out Philly Style Mag, CBSPhilly and Philly Voice. Look for additional photos in print in the May issue of Philly Mag. I’ll be posting more photos from the Flower Show next week after the show is finished.

Cheers for CHOPS is always a fun event, and this year was no difference. It was also held at a new venue for the first time in years, the Fillmore Philadelphia. Check out photos on Philly Voice, Philly Style and on March 24 in Mainline Media News, and in May Philly Mag. I’ll also have more photos here on Philly Chit Chat next week.

Thursday night I photographed the annual First Tee Philadelphia gala at the Philadelphia Country Club. Check out the photos here on Philly Style Mag, next week they’ll be on Philly Chit Chat and in an upcoming Philly Mag issue.

Thursday I also photographed “NRG Celebrates $600K Milestone Contribution Benefiting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia NRG Ambassador and Eagles Quarterback, Carson Wentz, will join NRG to announce contributions through the “Choose to Give” Energy Plan” Carson with the kids was the most adorable, moving moment and the whole event was very special. Before I headed out to my night time event I was able to get a few photos to CBSPhilly, and as always they got them up quickly. The column went viral, and CBSPhilly even featured it as a headline after a few hours. Check out the photos here, then head to PhillyVoice. I sent them 5 of the most adorable shots that will put a smile on your face.

Do yourself a favor and watch this video; So funny the kids keep calling Carson Wentz daddy. Watch til the end as the mom has a funny response to them.

Have a great day, hope to see you at the Philly Travel Show today, and perhaps at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade tomorrow. Bring your umbrella, it’s rain or shine. PLUS Daylights Savings Time, Spring Forward.
