October 24, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - October 25, 2014 @ 12:00 am
The 2014 Gravediggers’ Ball marks the 10th anniversary for the event! It will take place on Friday, October 24 at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia. Come out and listen to music by one of Philadelphia’s finest dance bands, Big Ric Rising. Enjoy tapas style dinner, complimentary wine, raffles, live, and silent auctions. All proceeds from the Gravediggers’ Ball go directly to the preservation of Laurel Hill Cemetery.
Established in 1836, Laurel Hill Cemetery dually serves as a place of enjoyment for the living and the dead. The first cemetery to be honored with the designation of “National Historic Landmark,” many whom impacted our nation’s history were laid to rest here. Laurel Hill has become a leader in creative programming and adaptive reuses for cemeteries around the world.
The event is black tie, costume, or masquerade attire only. There is even a chance to enter into a “best dressed” or “best costumed” contest! Mark your calendars and join us for what is sure to be a magnificent night!
