On Monday night Philadelphia Eagles Safety Malcolm Jenkins & The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation (TMJF) held the first annual Blitz, Bow Ties & Bourbon event to raise funds for expanding youth programs in the Philadelphia area.

The event was held at the newly renovated Union Trust Finley Catering event space, which recently underwent a conversion from a steakhouse to a really nice event hall. The evening began with a VIP cocktail party on the mezzanine level, where guests interacted with several of the Eagles players including Malcolm Jenkins, Connor Barwin, Jeremy Maclin, Mark Sanchez, while also noshing on savory treats from The Treemont Restaurant, Tradestone Confections, Sbraga and The Farm and Fisherman. Brian Bevilacqua, a bourbon master at Bank & Bourbon, gave guests a mini master classes on the understanding and taste of bourbon.

 An hour later the general admission guests entered Union Trust to join the party, and dance to the tunes of Valarie Adams & the Dimensions. There was also an extensive silent auction to raise additional funds for some of the programs TMJF funds including after school programs, scholarships and a football camp.

On Sunday night under the Headhouse Shambles, vendors, performers, families and Santa himself gathered to help kick off the holiday season. Visitors used the opportunity to buy a variety of gifts ranging from Reiki sessions to candles that look and smell just like real desserts. “A lot of people have come through and everyone is really happy. It’s been a great night-- the shambles are so cool,” said Joe Kirby, a bookbinder selling journals at the event.

The Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival on Saturday, December 6 was the ultimate food event!

The 23rd Street Armory was packed to the brim with over 15 beer vendors, 25 local restaurants and hundreds of participants. While the overt theme of the evening was unlimited beer and bacon, the event benefitted MANNA, a non-profit organization with a mission to cook and deliver nutrition-conscious meals to those in need. The annual celebration has successfully tripled in size since last year.
