The evening's highlights included speeches from Anne Ewers, CEO of the Kimmel Center, Mayor Michael Nutter and Sidney Kimmel along with performances from the Earth Art Collective and a number of other artistic acts. Lucky guests were able to experience the much talked about time machine and sample cusine by Iron Chef, Jose Garces.
