The Philadelphia Chapter Enjoys A Celebration at Longwood Gardens

June 17, 2013 9:55 AM | Theresa Boyce (Administrator)

The Philadelphia Chapter of CEO Trust held their Celebration at Longwood Gardens, one of the premier botanical gardens in the country. On the over 1,000 acres that was once held by William Penn, industrialist Pierre DuPont created his private estate and gardens that was later bestowed that is now a stunningly beautiful indoor and outdoor garden. The location was perfect for an outdoor Celebration that had Trustees and their guests mingling over cocktails and getting to know their fellow Trustees over a delicious dinner. I overheard comments from a number folks about how much the Chapter has grown and the great learning and networking opportunities that the CEO Trust provides.

In addition to cocktails and dinner, guests had a chance to win a fabulous raffle prize.  Below is a list of our raffle prize winners:

CEO Trust Coffee Cup – Abe Hughes, Vice President, New Holland Agricultural

CEO Trust Baseball Hat – Mark Spool, Ph.D., Management Development Solutions

CEO Trust Keepsake Box – Joe Tait, CIO, Lydall

Gift Certificate to The Capital Grille – George Nelson, CIO and Senior Vice President, Toll Brothers

Gift Certificate to the Four Seasons Hotel – Dr. Christine Stiles, The Center for Breast and Body Contouring

Exquisite bottle of Tignanello Sangiovese Cabernet along with a quality wine tote –

After dinner, guests were invited to stroll the grounds and Conservatory, ending the evening with a beautiful fountain and light show. Our host, Joe Calandra, of ADPI, knows how to throw a Celebration! Joe is to thank for providing such a terrific evening for our Trustees and their guests.
