In September of 2016 we hosted the Spruce Street Supper Club launch party to raise money for Girl Develop It – Philly. Guests were invited to the historic Physick House and enjoyed great food and beverage courtesy of 13th Street Cocktails, Cartesian Brewing, and Food Underground. Thanks to the help and support of the kick-off evening’s sponsors, food/beverage providers, hosts, and guests –
We raised $1,060 for Girl Develop It – Philly!
Spruce Street Supper Club is proud to be partnered with The Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks to host our inaugural event. Spruce Street Supper Club isn’t just another dinner club. It is an experience. It is a fundraiser. It is an exercise in community engagement. This first event will be supporting Girl Develop It, an organization operating nationally with an especially strong presence in Philly. Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that provides affordable programs targeted at adult women (but open to anyone) interested in learning web and software development in a judgment-free environment. Fifty percent of the ticket price for this event is a tax deductible donation directly from you, to Girl Develop It, so save your receipt come tax time.
The night will include featured guests from the Philadelphia tech scene including representatives from Girl Develop It and startups from around the city. The goal of the night is to come together, share some great food and drink, and learn a bit about technology and great non-profit generating impact in Philadelphia.
Get ready for a night featuring hors d'oeuvres stations, beer, and cocktails all from Philadelphia based providers. Ari Miller of Food Underground will be preparing an array of delicious bites both savory and sweets (menu details below). A signature punch bowl is being created and donated by 13th Street Cocktails.
