The Congress Gala dinner is scheduled for Thursday, April 16, 2015 from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm and will be held at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. This beautiful New Beaux-Arts style building, constructed in 1908 and designed by Cope and Stewardson, has the unique distinction of being home to the oldest medical society in the country (founded in 1787) and the renowned Mütter Museum.
As guests walk inside, they are surrounded by grandeur and elegance, and greeted by Aesculapius – the Greek god of medicine. The magnificent columned Marble Rotunda, with its view of a classic grand staircase, sets the stage for any occasion.
With its historic ambience and stately architecture, it’s no wonder that the College – located in Philadelphia’s charming Rittenhouse-Fitler Historic District – has been the chosen setting for a diverse range of memorable events.
NOTE: The dinner is not included in the registration fees. It is available for purchase at the cost of $75.00 USD per person.
