Friends Of The Manor Select The Perfect Fundraiser Venue For “An Evening Of Hope”

Friends Of The Manor Fundraiser VenueAs the team from Friends of the Manor searched the region for the perfect fundraiser venue, time and again their efforts brought them back to Franklin Commons. There was no denying that we were the perfect space for their upcoming event, An Evening Of Hope.

On the night of the big event, the Campus Walk was set up with tables, stationed and passed hors d’oeuvres, and live music from Rhodes Less Traveled.

The butlered hors d’oevures, made by the amazing chefs at Drexelbrook Catering, consisted of Mushrooms Stuffed with Spinch, Cheese, & Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Grilled Smoked Chicken, bacon, & Pepper Jack Cheese Quesadillas, and Cheese Steak Spring Rolls with Spicy Ketchup. At the stations, guests helped themselves to Grilled Hoisin Marinated Chicken, Lime & Ginger Marinated Shrimp Kebobs, and plenty of yummy bite-sized bits to dip in cheeses at the Fondue Bar.

While guests snacked on the delicious hors d’oeuvres, they had a chance to bid on several donated items in a silent auction. There were tons of awesome prizes, and Friends of the Manor earned lots of money to give to their cause: helping young men battling the disease of addiction.

With their bids in, the guests made their way to Franklin Hall, where the tables were set with a Butter Lettuce Salad topped with Roasted Pears, Aged Cheddar, Candied Walnuts, and Citrus Vinaigrette.

The main course was a duet of Chicken Piccata and Atlantic Salmon, served with Seasonal Vegetables and Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes.

The silent auction ended at 9:30, just in time for our dessert station to open up. Guests flocked to Drexelbrook’s Signature Sundae bar, where bowls of Hand-Spun Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Creams and Mango Water Ice were served with toppings including Hot Fudge, Strawberry Sauce, Candy Toppings, Cherries, Whipped Cream, Sugar Cones, Sprinkles, and countless other options.

Thanks to the amazing team at Friends of the Manor for choosing Franklin Commons as the venue for your incredible event. We were honored to be a part of such a wonderful cause.
