Time and place: Thursday at the Omni William Penn Hotel, Downtown.
Party for a cause: To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sisters Place, the Friends of Sisters Place Young Professional Board held a roaring 20s-themed bash complete with flappers, cigarette girls and casino games. #Seen in the crowd were young and enthusiastic Friends posing for selfies and gambling for a cause.
Sisters Place: "We have 32 families with a roof over their heads tonight because of the work we do. This place provides a lifeline for families who have no other support systems when things get tough," said executive director Sister Mary Parks. Added co-chair Mary Pat Stahler: "It's important for young people to get involved in these organizations because we can really make a difference when we work together."
#SEEN: Co-chair Lisa D'Onofrio, events chair Jacqueline Dully (#SeenBestCostume), Nikki Bielick, Ashley Battle, Dwayne Kirkland (#SeenBestDressed), Casey Kilroy, Katie Layendecker, Matthew Arch, Leslie Kotloski, and Thomas Jamison.
