Attend the William Penn Award Gala
March 3, 2012 by James
The William Penn Award Gala will be held at the Hyatt at the Bellevue on April 20 from 7-11 pm. Tickets are $325 for Young Professionals Network (YPN) members and $350 for fellows. YPN members can also purchase an extra ticket for $100 for the William Penn lounge. Black tie is requested.
The William Penn award is presented to an outstanding business person in the Greater Philadelphia area and is presented by The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. This year the award is honoring David L. Cohen of Comcast. The evening will start off with a reception in the Red Clover Room beginning at 7pm where appetizers and cocktails will be served and will then move onto the Grand Ballroom for dinner and dancing at 8 pm.
Local businesses can sponsor the event through program book ads. Ads cost $600 for a full page and $300 for a half page. In addition, they can purchase a supporter table of 10 for $3500 and a benefactors table for $5000; both of these consist of ad space and a listing of their business in the program. Philadelphia printing companies will no doubt be supplying the programs to the award gala.
The award gala will also be a chance for local business leaders and Chamber members to network with one and other and find out what they can do for each other. While this is a social event, handing your business card to those you meet is allowed; just don’t do any hard selling.
