We're getting excited! Get your Ticket today and Celebrate our Urban Village
CCRA is excited to announce its current sponsors for our Celebration of Center City Living: Urban Village, which is on Thursday, May 10, 6-8:30 pm, at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Sq. We strongly encourage all members and guests to RSVP for a night of cocktails and delicious hors d'oeuvres provided by classic local establishments.

Thank you to our current sponsors: AT&T, Brandywine Realty Trust, Independence Blue Cross, Boyds Philadelphia, Republic Bank, Robin Apartments, Trident Mortgage, Di Bruno Brothers, and Veda Restaurant, for helping us put together an evening of celebration, honoring this year's Lenora Berson Community Service Award winner Paul Levy.

CCRA is making this year's celebration a night to remember with our "Urban Village." We plan to illustrate this theme with specialized cocktails, village-like decor, and we will have several other fun additions such as our live and silent auction (a week stay at a fabulous Cape May home is one of the many great items up for grabs). Wine, beer, and other spirits will be available to go with the live music.

You can purchase tickets through Eventbrite, our website, or call the office at 215-546-6719.
