Art-Reach Gala at the Franklin Institute

Art-Reach enriches lives by connecting underserved audiences with cultural experiences so that they may enjoy and benefit from the transformative power of the arts. Last month they had a gala at the Franklin Institute and my friend Joshua Torrisi sent me a few photos of the event.

Art-Reach

The Cultural Access Awards were hosted by Art Reach on APRIL 5th, from 6 – 9 pm at The Franklin Institute. Art-Reach is a Philadelphia-based non-profit devoted to connecting underserved audiences with cultural experiences so that they may enjoy the transformative power of the arts.   Art-Reach is on pace to serve over 72,000 people with disabilities and those from low-income communities in our current program year.

Art-Reach

The night was filled with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, an award ceremony and a fully accessible verbal description tour of The Brain Exhibit to help give guests a sense for how low-vision and blind individuals can experience exhibits thanks to Art Reach​. They also featured an exciting pop-up performance from the Pennsylvania Ballet!

Art-Reach

Executive Director, John Orr Awarding the work of Mimi Kenney Smith,

Each year the award ceremony acts as an annual fundraiser for Art-Reach, providing essential support to continue their work in mobilizing thousands of individuals to engage with the vibrant arts and culture in the Philadelphia Region.  Art-Reach

Founded in 1986, Art-Reach increases access to the arts for traditionally underserved audiences, including people with disabilities, at-risk youth, the economically disadvantaged, and the elderly in need. Art-Reach partners with over 170 arts and cultural organizations and 160 human service agencies throughout the Delaware Valley, including southeastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and southern New Jersey. Each year Art-Reach provides arts and cultural opportunities to over 45,000 individuals who would not normally have access to the arts.

Philly Gossip: Will Smith, #bcbgmaxazria closed, Alex Holley Honored

Good Philly Gossip Monday. Hope you had a great weekend despite this horrible weather. Congrats to so many Philadelphian’s that ran and conquered the Broad Street Run.

It was exciting to see how many people in my timeline posted photos from the race, their medals, and bibs.Philly Gossip
Will Smith and super fan Kevin outside the Ritz last week.

I was chatting a lot about Will Smith being in town last week;  He was checking out the Residences at Ritz Carlton on Monday with realtors, while staying at the Ritz hotel next door. He used the Residences at Ritz Carlton gym everyday, seemed to enjoy the 2PM workout time.  Friday he ran into Bad Boy co-star Martin Lawrence who was in town to perform at Temple that evening. No word on what they discussed, but my friend who reads lips said it seemed they were chatting about a Bad Boy sequel.  I bet he was telling Martin that Philly will be seeing more of him, and hopefully Jada Smith, as they are now the majority owners of the Sixers.

Yes it’s true #bcbgmaxazria closed on April 24 at 16th and Walnut. The sign on the door says visit them at their KOP or Cherry Hill Mall store.

It’s been fun following along with Kharisma MCllwaine and her brother Aloysius on their trip to Morocco via snapchat, which I’m trying to learn.

Philly Gossip
Seriously, if anyone was going to meet the new quarterback, Carson Wentz, first it was going to be Melissa Leonard. Here she is at the meet and greet press conference, as well as season owners of boxes.

Friday was a very special day for the Good Day Philadelphia Crew as they celebrated their 20 years on air with their loyal fans. Everyone turned up, chatted with viewers and posed for countless selfies.

Philly Gossip

Before the event though Mike Jerrick headed to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where they had a prom for the kids. So sweet. Then he headed to the party at Sugarhouse.

Philly Gossip

After the 20th Anniversary Party, my friend Alex Holley, FOX 29 co-host of “Good Day Philadelphia,”  was honored Friday night at the 7th annual 2016 NV Movers & Shakers Soiree in NYC.  Love her.

Philly Gossip

Then Saturday night Mike Jerrick headed to DC to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Philly Gossip

I wonder if he ran into Mike’s cousin David Nakamura (Washington Post White House correspondent), here with his wife Kris Schenck

Philly Gossip

PS PhillyChitChat updates will be on vacation til next Wed as we get ready to launch my newly refreshed site you have all been bugging me to do for the past 5 years. Now I’ll be pretty on WordPress, with social on the side, oh and mobile optimized. Thanks to Chatterblast and 2one5 for dragging me into the modern millennial age.

You can still catch all the latest by following me on 
FB Philly ChitChat, twitter HughE Dillon (@iPhillyChitChat) | Twitter
or instagram PhillyChitChat  I will be microblogging and dropping news like I heard a rumor that Marc Vetri is looking to open up a cute little cafe in Point Breeze, or OMG 19th Street PhillyFlavors has brown paper on its windows, is it closed or could they be renovating the closet size store which is odd since they were closed all winter, open in March and now brown paper,  and finally Kaufman’s the sandwich place on 19th Street, which used to be 4th Street Deli, is now going to become a healthy salad bar/juice eatery by the summer, a popular NYC chain is coming in to run it.
(Normally I include this info in my Monday Morning Philly Gossip Column on PhillyChitChat, which will return April 18) OK here’s the list. Cut/Copy/Screenshot for your use.

 

Kelly Drive
MLK Drive – which is also closed weekends From April 2 to October 29 for recreational activities
Noon to 5PM.
Partial closure from the beginning of MLK Drive at the Art Museum to Sweetbriar Drive 7am to NOON. Then that portion is open for vehicular traffic, but from Sweetbriar to Falls Bridge remains closed til 5PM. My advice just take the Schuylkill or drive through West Philly to Girard and jump on the expressway there.

Fashionable Ladies Who Lunch In Style For Philanthropy – The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia

The days of impossibly glamorous, hugely entertaining, and utterly without purpose ladies luncheons of days gone by have now been replaced these days by equally as social, very stylish, successful women who have philanthropy on their minds. I love covering these very relaxed, but fashionably minded events.

Last week at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia hosted their 13th Annual In Fashion with Baja East charity luncheon.

 Lunch was catered by Feastivities, and the table decor was simple in a farm to table style.
 

 Salad was placed in front of the guests, and another server gave the guest a choice of chicken or salmon from a serving dish. Very clever. Dessert a sorbet with a thin cookie. 
There was a live auction for two designer bags and a trip to NYC to see Baja East collection in February.  Plus a live bid, where the Philadelphia auctioneer Jeffrey Hammond explained how an additional money gift would help a child who’s parent was going through cancer treatment, or a program would benefit a family. 
 
Total raised from auction and live bid, over $10,000. Very nice.

 10 % of the sales from anything bought at Saks Fifth Avenue that day was also donated to the CSC

 Baja East is known for it’s loose luxury from surf to street 
For Spring, designers Scott Studenberg and John Targon
reimagined their signature urban nomad through the lens of rave, down
to the polished take on kandi seen at models’ wrists and necks.

The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.  We provide a comprehensive professional program of social and emotional support and education designed to enhance the mind, body, and spirit of people whose lives have been affected by cancer.  All of our programs and services are provided at no cost to our participants (known as our members) so there’s never a barrier for anyone who needs cancer support.  No one should have to face cancer alone.

Be Social: Charity and Notable Events in Philly, Plus #PCCBuzz

Be Social – Every Sunday I’ll post upcoming events that have been sent to me that I think you’d be interested in attending, but since I’m creating this new “column” I want to play catch up. Often I put these events on on twitter, not so much on my other social media outlets.

So they’re here for you to put on your calendar.  Be sure to follow me on Twitter @iphillychitchat (#PCCBuzz), Instagram and Facebook: PhillyChitChat where I will post various events daily.

The Philly Social Scene is underway, whether it’s a grand gala, a trunk show, Forbes 30 under 30 I’ll fill you in, and in most cases will have photos and info from the event. Next to the events where I know I’ll be shooting I will say Smile, I’ll be here shooting.

Divas Simply Singing in Stunning Fashion for Charity

Saturday night, the original Dream Girl – Sheryl Lee Ralph brought her long running HIV/AIDS Charity concert to the Dell Music Center in Fairmount Park. The concert was a huge success raising awareness, and money for services in and around Philadelphia as well as to her on charitable organization100% of the proceeds from DIVAS Simply Singing! supports The DIVA Foundation’s awareness and prevention programs.

There’s no mistake about it Miss Sheryl Lee Ralph (Mrs. Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes) brought it the moment she hit the stage.
It was a beautiful night, and the Dell Music Center was full of people who wanted to here the DIVA’s Sing. In my Philly Mag column I bring you to the concert, the link is at the bottom of page. The all-star line-up features Faith Evans , Angela Winbush, Meli’sa
Morgan , Monifah , Candace Benson, runner-up on season 7 of BET Sunday
Best, Philly’s own Carol Riddick, Matthew Schuler , contestant on season 5 of The Voice  and Urban Guerilla Orchestra.
On Philly Chit Chat we’re just going to be mesmerized by the flawlessness of Miss Sheryl Lee Ralph

Who I fell in love with in 1993 when my friend David Powell, Dan Hrabosky and Alex Miller headed to Washington DC for the “March On Washington.” Diva’s Simply Singing was celebrating their third year raising awareness for HIV/AIDS and we went to the concert, although I vaguely recall Dan heading out for a date.
I remember that the late, great Teena Marie was also on the bill that evening as well as many other amazing talents. It left a lasting impression on me.
When the 25th Anniversary Diva’s Simply Singing announced they were coming to the Dell East I knew I had to get the word out, as well as cover it.
Sheryl Lee Ralph and her glam squad
The billing , cause and turn out didn’t disappoint. Check out the legendary Faith Evans posing for the photographers.

But the highlight of the evening had to be when Sheryl Lee Ralph surprised her husband, Senator Vincent Hughes with Pastor Campbell on stage so that they could renew their vows after 10 years of blissful marriage. To the right is his step-children, and her children – Ivy-Victoria Maurice and Etienne Maurice. Congratulations to the new newlyweds!!

I couldn’t find this online anywhere, but my neighbor is on the Parkway Council Board and sent it to me. We live on the Parkway and every weekend wake up to someone blaring music and yelling thru a megaphone. Then we think What’s On The Parkway? Sorry they’re not pretty they came on excel spreadsheets and I couldn’t format them correctly. I think an intern that can do that. Feel free to copy and distribute so others can be informed.
