Grand Season Finale Gala

Curtis Grand Season Finale

On Sunday, April 13, 2014 nearly 400 guests gathered at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts for a special gala evening honoring Marguerite and H. F. "Gerry" Lenfest. The gala highlighted the Lenfests' exceptional leadership and philanthropy at Curtis. Chaired by Fran and Leon Levy, John Medveckis, and Robin and Mark Rubenstein, the event raised more than $830,000 to benefit Curtis's Student Assistance Fund.

The evening began with a cocktail reception and special presentation to the Lenfests in the Perelman Theater, followed by an elegant dinner in Commonwealth Plaza by Jose Garces.

 

 

Guests concluded the evening with a moving performance by the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, featuring soloists Benjamin Schmid and Roberto Díaz.

 



The Grand Season Finale Gala was also featured in Philadelphia Magazine's The Scene. Read about the event and view photos of guests at cocktails and dinner, with photography by HughE Dillon.
