Andrew Hamilton Benefit

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, this year’s Andrew Hamilton Benefit Gala, taking place at the National Constitution Center on November 8, will be nothing like you have ever experienced! Prepare to dance, dine and celebrate the night away with catering by Brûlée, music by Urban Guerilla Orchestra, and an original copy of the Bill of Rights on display. Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO of Merck & Co., will be presenting the Louis H. Pollak Champion of the Public Interest Award to Robert C. Heim. In addition, attendees can expect many other honors and surprises throughout the evening. We hope to have 750 lawyers and supporters joining us to celebrate 50 years of impact and justice for all.
