Mad Hatters Ball
AIGA Philadelphia Annual Gala and Silent Auction
Date and Time
Friday, June 12, 2015 7:00pm–11:00pm
Christ Church Neighborhood House
20 N. American Street Philadelphia, PA 19106
Join us down the rabbit hole for a festive evening of madness and whimsy, a silent auction, music, prizes, food and drinks. Don’t forget to come wearing semi-formal attire and your most fashionable or wackiest hat. Prizes will be awarded for the most creative hats!
As our largest fundraising event of the year, proceeds support AIGA Philadelphia SPACE and our continued programming of lectures, exhibits and workshops that enrich the community and our membership of over 600 local design professionals, educators and students.
For the first time, the items available for auction bidding include special commissioned works with a “Mad Hatter/Alice in Wonderland” theme by top local designers and illustrators. Exciting “Mystery Boxes” from select design studios will also be available by raffle.
