As Philly’s main chronicler of social events in Philadelphia, I can tell you that there are a lot of events and a lot of conflicts where similar events are held on the same day . All the way back in 2008 when I bought the URL’s Philadelphia Social Calendar and Philly Social Calendar dreaming one day that I could create a calendar of social events to help charities as well as business’ get the word out, and as a service to people who wanted to attend events. Definitely one of the most asked questions I am asked is “I wish I knew of that event beforehand, I would have gone.” Over the years Social Media has helped me get the word out, and there are really good sources that do as well, but I still get ask the question after I post photos about an event. Thanks to Lynsie Solomon for coming to me and telling me we can make this happen as well as the team at EFS Networks Inc that built the website, the dream I had nearly a decade ago is now coming true. (It’s hard to believe but PhillyChitChat is 10 years old in July)
Philadelphia Social Calendar is Philadelphia’s one-stop-shop for all of the events and activities that make our city that much more vibrant. We priced it reasonably as we really want this to be a service to the City as well. Both Lynsie and I are passionate about events, especially charities, and hope a calendar like this will make it easier for organizations when planning those events to make the most positive impact in the community for a successful outcome. I remember one year when the Morris Animal Refuge and the Pennsylvania SPCA picked the same date for their galas. People were upset, it was convenient for me as one was at the Marriott and the other at the Loews, but others had to choose. Or this past year when Komen Philadelphia had their Pink Tie the same night as Philly Fights Cancer on opposite sides of town. Events can’t always be scheduled for everyone’s convenience but if we can help in anyway to alleviate conflicts, we hope this calendar will.
