Friday Night was the Donors Are Heroes' 10th annual "THE Party" at the Four Seasons Philadelphia
Co-founded by Renee and Don Freeman (Freeman Interiors) Donors are Heroes raises awareness about organ donation. A group of dedicated friends, committed to raising public awareness for the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor, to dispel myths and provide a means for people to share their donation wishes with family and friends. This year's co-chairs were Eric Allen (l), Lauren Huezo & Tina Lamsback (center). (I'll have a fun photo on PhillyMag from this party later today.)
|Honorees for the night were Bernard and Joan Spain- 10th Anniversary Heroes of the Year Award. Bernie addressing the guests at the VIP party.|
There's a reason it's called "The Party" cause as soon as DJ Eddie Tully put the needle to the record the dance floor fills up til the stroke of 11.
