Champagne, roses, berets, and musicians created an air de fête at the Sofitel Hotel Philadelphia (17th and Sansom Sts.), during an intimate gathering where PHS president Drew Becher announced that tickets are now on sale for 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show, Springtime in Paris.
Drew likened the Flower Show to other national landmark events, such as the Kentucky Derby and Mardi Gras. He is encouraging Philadelphians to take pride in what the Flower Show accomplishes in our city year after year. Other guest speakers at the event included Michele Waters of the Sofitel Philadelphia, Edward Kozmor from PNC, and PHS’s own Sam Lemheney, who shared his vision for the 2011 Show.
All the speakers emphasized that the Flower Show is a fundraisier to support PHS’s greening projects, including a bold new tree-planting campaign that will be officially launched at the Show this March.
