Do you remember? The 21st night of September?
On this night at The Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, The Gladney Center held their Gala Reception for the renowned Gladney Cup, a world-class, PGA style charity golf event held every other year at the most beautiful courses in the country. This year it was held at the historic Merion Golf Club, home of the 2013 US Open. At the golf outing, apres golf cocktails and hors d’s were highlighted by BVTLive’s Inspired Emotions pianist Bill Handy followed by renowned jazz guitarist Tony Forliano and his trio.
At the pre-event gala, Brian Toner’s Eventions Productions paired with one of the top national dance bands, BVTLive‘s Sid Miller Dance Band, created a real “A-Team” for this night. The gala was attended by over six hundred guests from all over the country, pulling together to raise over $500,000 for this organization.
Here is what The Gladney Foundation had to say about the event:
The SMDB was FABULOUS at our event!! Unbelievable energy and style. The dance floor was packed ALL night. Sid’s professionalism and insight thru the planning process really helped things run smoothly.
We plan to use SMDB again.
