The deadline for purchasing tickets and program ads has been extended to May 29. Email echase@Cliveden.org for more information.
Over the past two decades, the Cliveden Heritage Award has been presented to philanthropists, curators, business leaders, historians and educators for their wide-ranging contributions to Cliveden, to the communities of northwest Philadelphia, and to the realm of public history. In presenting U.S. Representative Allyson Schwartz with the 2013 Cliveden Heritage Award, the Cliveden Board of Directors applauds her commitment to public service and her career-long efforts in support of families and individuals of all ethnicities, genders, religions and sexual orientation. Through her work on such initiatives as the Livable Communities Task Force and the Congressional Historic Preservation Caucus, she has been a vocal leader in the promotion of safe, sustainable, economically strong communities. Clearly Allyson Schwartz shares Cliveden’s core purpose: to create in all neighborhoods a pride of place, where the past is valued, preserved and used for the benefit of the community.
The keynote speaker will be Rev. Dr. Mark Kelly Tyler, pastor of Mother Bethel AME Church.Cocktails begin at 6:30 pm. Museum tours begin at 6:30 pm. Dinner begins at 7:30 pm
