On Wednesday, April 30th, guests will enjoy the Preakness at the Piazza Pre-Party at Boyd’s Philadelphia. This event will serve as the kickoff to the larger event, recognized as “The Fashion Event of the Season,” which takes place on May 17th, in the popular and spacious Piazza in the Northern Liberties. Ticket holders of the main event are encouraged to attend and enjoy complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres. 100 percent of the net proceeds from the event will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Boyd’s Philadelphia is a luxury clothier specializing in an impressive array of services, creating a one-of-a-kind shopping experience for its customers. During the pre-party, guests can browse the many floors of the store in order to find the perfect outfit to make a fashion statement at the fundraiser.
Following last year’s model, and remaining true to Preakness Stakes fashion tradition, guests are encouraged to sport their best derby attire, including “girls in hats” and “guys in bow ties” at the main event. They’ll also be watching the 139th Preakness Stakes on the Piazza’s large television while enjoying food, drinks, fashion and friends. Upgrades from last year include and VIP passes and an after-party.
Events like this help the MS Society of the Greater Delaware Valley raise funds for “cutting edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education and providing programs and services that empower people with MS and their families to move their lives forward.” Proceeds enable the organization to provide professional counseling, education support, access to medical referrals, and homebound assistance in order to help families affected by MS lead productive lives.
