Keep reading to find out how you can win a pair of tickets for the 24th annual Hair O’ The Dog on January 20th! This year’s event will be hosted by Alex Holley, co-anchor of Fox 29’s Good Day Philadelphia, and will take place at the Hilton Hotel at Penn’s Landing.
What’s Hair O’ The Dog you ask? Only one of the best parties here in Philadelphia. It was founded in 1994 by Daniel Cronin and Robert Molinaro, who are also the co-founders of Chorus Communications, a Technology Consulting firm located in Old City. The first Hair O’ The Dog was held at the former Tiki Club in King of Prussia. At that party, they decided that their love of fun, combined with their whip-smart business sense, could generate income for non-profits through fundraising.
Hair O’ The Dog was born. The founders were thrilled with the original 100 person turn out and each year since, this glamorous-gala has grown tremendously in both size and prominence. Past attendees include but are not limited to; NBC’s Meteorologist Sheena Parveen, Tony Bruno, Comedian Joe Conklin, former Governor Ed Rendell, Mob Wives Alicia DiMichele along with multiple Philadelphia Eagles players and Cheerleaders, Sixers and Flyers players. Held each year at an exclusive Philadelphia venue, a portion of the event proceeds are given to various local charities such as: Big Brothers And Big Sisters, The Garden of Reflection (PA’s official 9-11 memorial), The National Constitution Center, Habitat for Humanity, Project H.O.M.E., Friends of Memorial Hall Fund, the Sunshine Foundation, The Great Guy Group, The Bethesda Project, Friends Are By Your Side, The Claddagh Fund, THON, and Bianca’s Kids.
This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Center for Autism, a non-profit organization founded in 1955 by renowned child psychiatrist Dr. Bertram A. Ruttenberg. It’s the oldest autism treatment center in the country and a leading provider of services in the Philadelphia region today.
