Looking for a great way to take advantage of the warmer weather and support the Free Library? Kick off the summer season with the Raven Society and celebrate the best of Philadelphia at its inaugural summer fundraising event, Ravens on the Rooftop.
On Thursday, May 31 from 6-9 p.m., the Raven Society and dozens of young Library supporters (21+ only, please) will gather on the Parkway Central Library's Skyline Terrace to spend a Philly-inspired evening enjoying the best views, local food, craft beverages, prizes, and music that the city has to offer.
Tickets are $20 for Raven members, $30 for general admission, and include all-you-can-eat gourmet cookout and foodtruck fare; an open bar featuring beer, wine, and a specialty cocktail; an entry into a drawing for a great door prize; and the chance to win some fabulous silent auction items. Ticket prices will increase by $5 at the door.
The Raven Society, created for Library supporters who are in their 20s and 30s, hosts a variety of events throughout the year aimed at supporting the Library, advancing its mission, and connecting with other Library lovers in the city. Each year Ravens are invited to literary happy hours throughout the city, meet and greets with talented, up-and-coming young authors, and a variety of other exclusive special events and receptions, such as Ravens on the Rooftop. Join today to take advantage of these wonderful opportunities and help the Free Library continue to be a centerpiece for lifelong learning!
