Wellesley-in-Philadelphia celebrates history at Independence Beer Garden! July 25th, 3:30 - 6:30pm

WiP invites all alumnae in Philadelphia on July 25th to join us to celebrate our 125th anniversary at a moment in history the Founding Fathers never imagined! SMASH!


W-i-P celebrates summer in the city at Independence Beer Garden just steps from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall! This is another historic moment in Philadelphia as we witness a Wellesley alumna become the first woman nominated for President by a major political party.

We hope all local alums and those in town for the DNC will come raise a pint (or a glass of chardonnay) with us to toast the breaking of this highest, hardest glass ceiling! Friends and family welcome.glass-ceiling-1

Register here. $10 cover per person includes cheese steaks, sliders, and other appetizers. Cash Bar with Happy Hour discounts.
