The Friends of Rittenhouse Square Kick-Off the 100th Anniversary of Paul Cret’s Design of Rittenhouse Square at Boyds Philadelphia
Friday, November 30, 2012
Boyds Philadelphia, 1818 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia
Boyds hosted a shopping celebration for The Friends of Rittenhouse Square kicking-off the 100th Anniversary Celebration of Paul Cret’s design of Rittenhouse Square. The party featured trunk shows from designers Michael Kors, Herve Leger, Ter et Bantine, Ermenegildo Zegna and Brioni & Isaia. A portion of the evening’s sales from the trunk shows were donated to the Friends of Rittenhouse Square and directly support 2013 restoration initiatives for Rittenhouse Square, one of Philadelphia’s most treasured landmarks.
Festive fare served at the party were from acclaimed restaurateurs Marc Vetri and Jeff Michaud of the Vetri Family Restaurants, Stephen Starr of Starr Restaurants, and Michael Schulson of Izakaya and Sampan. Three lucky shoppers who purchased a $50 key to the “treasure boxes” won one of three luxurious prizes including: a Roberto Coin Diamond Necklace from Govberg Jewelers, a Salvatore Ferragamo handbag from Boyds, and a Trussini made-to-measure suit from Boyds. The funds raised from the “treasure boxes” further benefited the Friends of Rittenhouse Square.
