PCA "Night in Vegas" to raise funds for senior services

Celebrating more than 45 years of improving the quality of life for older Philadelphians, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) is set to host its 2019 gala, A Night in Vegas, on Thursday, June 20, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at its historic building at 642 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia. The gala will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, photo booth and “wine grab.” In keeping with the theme, the event will also feature casino-style games and an Elvis impersonator.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Philadelphia seniors in need. This annual gala is the agency’s largest fundraiser for the Philadelphia Fund for Seniors, which supports the vital, basic services that PCA provides to help the city’s seniors maintain their health and productivity and to age in place in the community. Silent auction items will be available for bid throughout the night and include a Cape May beach house and a vacation home in Aspen. Additional auction items include dinner for four at Hugo’s Frog Bar & Chophouse, a Phillies suite box, tickets to “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and premier tickets to other Philadelphia sports games, events and concerts.

“Not only is our event an opportunity to have a great time, but it is also vital in raising much-needed funds to assist our senior population,” PCA president & CEO Holly Lange said. “Gala attendees are truly making a difference through their generous contributions.”

Tickets, program book ads and sponsorships are available here. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $15,000 and can be purchased until Thursday, May 23. Tickets will be available until Friday, June 7, for $125 per person. For more information, please call (215) 765 -9000, ext. 5067, or email here.
