The Friends of Rittenhouse Square, a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, was formed in 1976 with a mission to preserve, protect, and beautify Rittenhouse Square. Funds raised by the 2014 Ball on The Square will be directed towards the preservation of Rittenhouse Square.
Rittenhouse Square is not only one of Philadelphia’s most valued landmarks, but it is also a focal point for the neighborhood, a meeting place for residents and workers, and an oasis of nature and tranquility in an urban setting. More information about The Friends is available at http://www.friendsofrittenhouse.org.

BALLROOM AT THE BEN | 834 Chestnut Street  |  A Celebration to Life!

A Celebration of Life began in 2011 to honor the memory of Kyle Craig, a 21-year-old student at Vanderbilt University who took his life in May of 2010.

May 10, 2018 Minding Your Mind | Weblog | albfor.com | TemplateKyle was a dynamic friend to many; a bright, handsome, and gifted individual across music and athletics, but whose strength of character enabled his growing struggles to be hidden from view. The grief over his shocking loss has been transformed into action. Beginning in Nashville, and expanding to New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston, this annual event has reached thousands of individuals and provided funding for hundreds of Minding Your Mind programs.
