The arrival of June brings with it one of the swankiest galas in town, The Ball on the Square, a gala for 300+ benefiting the Friends of Rittenhouse Square. A non-profit organization established in 1976, the Friends provide the financial support for the preservation, protection and beautification of the historic six-acre Rittenhouse Square Park.
As usual, the black tie gala will take place in a large tent placed right in the middle of the Square. In fact, it’s actually quite a clever feat of event planning since the tent will be installed on top of the existing fountains, with poles and flooring installed in and around statues, limestone walls, the Guard House and intricate landscaping. This will be the 20th year that Evantine has decorated the gala, with each year’s design a complete surprise and WOW for the guests! Evantine’s own Brian Kappra will AGAIN be the glue that pulls the whole design together, with this year’s theme honing in on vibrant hues of tangerine and fuschia juxtaposed against modern white. In fact, Brian is a co-chair for the gala alongside Alan Sandman and John Pcsolar. Entertainment will be provided by the Eddie Bruce Band and all cuisine by Stephen Starr Events.
