Millésimé & Ligne Roset & Arclinea Kitchens Hosts a fundraiser Cocktail Party

Ligne Roset Philadelphia celebrated community and the good work done by Need in Deed and Vetri Community Partnership at a private event hosted on Thursday evening, June 1, 2017 at their Old City location (33 N. 2nd Street). To honor the occasion, they auctioned off two Ottoman armchairs designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance, with special Masai upholstery by Raf Simons. 100% of the silent auction proceeds will go directly to these local charities. Both organizations are doing incredibly important work for the youth of Philadelphia.

The Boyz II Men Breakdown of Broad Street Naming – Plus Welcome America Highlights

Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day for the dedication of the Boyz II Men Blvd on Broad Street. Now the section of the street renamed doesn’t affect folks address who live or do business along that section, as I read on Philly.com comments. People who lived on the street were panicking for those that did live on the street, or possibly had too much time on their hands. This is an honorable mention for  the boyz from Philly who made it big time.

The members of R&B’s legendary Boyz II Men were honored Saturday June 24, 2017 at their alma mater, Philadelphia High School for the Creative & Performing Arts on Broad Street in South Philly (although when the guys attended the school was located on 17th Street), when the City named a section of the street after them from Christian and Carpenter — Boyz II Men Boulevard. Boyz II Men consisted of 4 guys from Philadelphia (Michael McCary, Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Shawn Stockman) who went on superstars with songs like  “End of the Road”, “Motown Philly” and  “I’ll Make Love to You” .

When I arrived for the 11AM ceremony, the honorees were inside the Philadelphia High School for the Creative & Performing Arts on Broad Street doing print press, as well as posing for photos while enjoying Tastykakes and other Philly delights. Back story: The Boyz met at the school, but not this school. At the time they went to school it was located on 17th Street. First out the door was Nicole Cashman, CEO of Cashman & Assoc. Melanie Sole, who handles the Welcome America press, and behind her in the blue shirt is Welcome America President and CEO Jeff Guaracino, who’s team produces July 4th in Philadelphia – Wawa Welcome America

Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman, Michael McCary, and Nathan Morris met during the 1980s while attending the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts. A few years back Michael McCary left the group, but Shawn Stockman honored him by wearing an original Boyz II Men shirt.
