You know that huge “unused” hotel that you pass by on North Broad Street called “The Divine Lorraine Hotel?!
Well the company that owns the buidling is throwing a block party to make an update to the building…”The Divine Lorraine Hotel’s neon sign will shine over North Broad Street again this week after more than a decade since the sign was last lit for continuous use”, said Chris Cordaro, vice president of EB Realty.
On Wednesday Nov. 3rd, EB Realty Management will host a block party to celebrate the official sign lighting at the hotel-turned-apartment complex. The party will include games, food trucks (Cow in The Curd, Prime Stache, Dos Hermanos Taco’s, Baby Blues BBQ, Nick’s Roast Beef, Philly Pretzel Factory, Sweet Box), live music and a beer garden, sponsored by Yards Brewery and Tito’s Vodka. Attendees can enter a raffle for a private tour of the building.
In addition to celebrating the historic building, the event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region. Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region’s mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Chris Cordaro (EB Realty), who is a “big brother” himself, said “Big Brothers Big Sisters is the charity EB Realty believes has the biggest significance in North Philadelphia”. Both pop-up shops also benefited Big Brother Big Sisters.
