Fred’s Footsteps held its first spring fundraiser – The Party in the Park – on June 8, 2007 at Franklin Square Park in Philadelphia. The park had recently re-opened following a multi-million dollar rehabilitation by Historic Philadelphia, Inc., and was sparkling with its beautiful Merry-go-round and miniature golf course. After three years in the park, the event moved to Fairmount Park’s Please Touch Museum for four successful years before finding its home at Urban Outfitters, Inc. in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. 2017 marked our fourth year in this incredible, exclusive location. Now appropriately named the Party in the YARD, the event has been deemed by many the most fun event of the season!
Party in the Yard
Fred’s Footsteps returned to Urban Outfitters, Inc. in the Philadelphia Naval Yard for the sixth consecutive year on Saturday, March 9. Over 600 guests enjoyed an evening of specialty cocktails by 13th Street Cocktail Catering, delicious food, our famous Wall of Wine, silent and live auctions, dancing, and more! The event was a record-breaking success and raised $275,000 in support of our work with families in the region.
