I threw my first real party on Friday night.
I’ve been trying to remember the last time I had a party. No birthday parties, maybe a dinner party here and there, perhaps one in college, but nothing for a long, long time. And nothing quite like that.
I teamed up with Alex Hillman from IndyHall and Young Involved Philly to bring a bunch of Philly-centric people together to celebrate the City. I was nervous, and gave myself way too much work, but it was totally worth it.
The #whyilovephilly Party happened on November 30th, 2012
at the Trestle Inn (make the trek to the Callowhill neighborhood, it’s worth it).
We filled the bar to capacity at 6pm on a Friday night.
And bought our guests lots and lots of drinks thanks to a group of amazing sponsors.
There were Love Note slide shows,
And lots of handwritten love notes to be mailed out.
In the end, we raised over $400 for the Mighty Writers,
Had a blast,
And developed an even bigger crush on the city (From NewsWorks).
Until next time!
