Philadelphia honors local businessman at annual awards

March 22, 2014 by  

The William Penn Awards Gala is taking place this April in Philadelphia, and is a presentation of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.

This year’s honoree will be Joseph Neubauer, who is the Chairman of the Board for Aramark. In order to receive this award, a businessperson has had to have made significant contributions to the economy of the city.

The event will consist of a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and the awards presentation. Dress is black tie. Everyone who attends will receive a commemorative program booklet.

Sponsorships are available from $3,500 – $6,500. All sponsors will be recognized in the program as well, as being able to purchase advertisements.

This is one of the biggest networking events of the Philadelphia business year and will likely draw hundreds of the city’s most powerful leaders. Placing a new business card printing order will be in the minds of many people who are planning to attend the gala. It is important that the information contained on those cards is correct and that the businessperson has enough to hand out to those he or she meets.

The William Penn Award Gala is being held in the Grand Ballroom at the Bellevue on April 11 from 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Tickets are $350 or $325 for YPN members. To learn more about the event, call 215-545-1234.
