Friends of Rittenhouse
Annual Fundraiser is back

The Friends of Rittenhouse Square is pleased to invite you to a celebration bringing our community back together.  Each summer, the FORS hosts a fundraiser in support of its mission to Preserve, Protect and Beautify our park.  After two years unable to gather in person, we are excited to reconnect with our friends and neighbors in the park we all cherish. Join us for an unforgettable evening including dinner, drinks, music and entertainment.


In an abundance of caution and for the safety of all of our attendees, this year’s event, the Summer Soirée, will be a festive outdoor style garden dinner party that will include a fun-filled night under the stars!  

We hope you can join us and bring along friends, family and your furry loved ones too!  Ticket options include a variety of dining styles from traditional seating to picnic areas with your own blanket sponsored by the AKA Hotel. Please click here to reserve your spot while they last!

What to expect:

  • Drinks: All beverages are BYOB. We encourage you to pack your favorite bottle. Be sure to remember your opener! Guests will be provided with disposable glassware to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the park.  No glass will be permitted. 

  • Meals: All meals are included in the ticket price and you will be asked to choose your selection at the time of registration.  Additional food items will also be available for purchase up to two weeks before the event.  You may also feel free to bring your own accompaniments to your meal.  

  • Attire: Are you excited to get out of your loungewear and put on your dancing shoes? We are!  When planning your outfit, think garden florals, Kentucky derby, and Nantucket winery chic. We cannot wait to see what you all come up with for the evening. Keep in mind, this event will take place outdoors under the stars in our beautiful Square, so we ask that you take the weather and the grounds into account when planning your outfit and footwear.  

More to expect:

  • Seating: All seating will be in accordance to the ticket type purchased - table, group or individual. We will assign you a space in your selected area per the ticket type purchased.  

  • Arrival: When you arrive, please proceed to your assigned welcome tent (assignment will be provided via email). From there, our team will direct you to your dining space.  Your meals will be available for pick up along the way and we will be there to assist all guests as needed throughout the night. We ask that you arrive within the 30 minute window assigned to you to help us ensure every guest is seated in a timely manner.

  • Entertainment: There will be no shortage of that! You can expect rotating DJs, live music and street performers. This is sure to be a fun-filled celebration!
