At Benefit v.15, Win Back the City with our annual silent art auction and fundraiser, where silent auction items will open up a whole new array of cultural and dining experiences on Saturday, February 7 at Crane Arts. With hundreds of works of art, gift certificates, home design items, and more, we’ve broken down some of our favorite choices for following the thread around Philadelphia’s artistic Labyrinth.

Keep your theater masks set to smile with a package of tickets from 1812 Productions, the all-comedy theater company. Toe-tap your way over to dance performances by Ballet X, PA Ballet, and Dance Affiliates. Relive 200 years of stage memories with America’s oldest theater, The Walnut Street Theatre.

brynIf stage performances aren’t your style, there’s always the call of the silver screen. A one-year membership to Bryn Mawr Film Institute includes discounted admission to screenings and events. Or if you’ve ever wanted to step beyond the screen into a fantastical world where colors and forms take kaleidoscope shapes across the walls and floors, a Family Membership to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens just might fit the bill. Architectural wonders and historical secrets await those who venture into an Intrepid Membership with Hidden City Philadelphia.

cookTaste your way across the neigborhoods with gift certificates from venues like The Capital Grille and Vesper, or go for a more personalized experience with a prive one-hour wine party at On the Front Vines or a private meal in your home prepared by Chef Barbie Marshall, a top finalist from Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Bid on these and other items in advance on the auction site, or join us at Benefit v.15 on Saturday, February 7. Click here to purchase tickets at the advance price. Or join us for Young Professionals Night on Friday, February 6.
