Philadelphia Legacies is more than an event. Philadelphia Legacies highlights those sung and unsung Philadelphians and organizations who have made major contributions to our city by creating beautiful portraits commissioned to outstanding local artists, presenting awards, running historic tours through Philadelphia neighborhoods that trace those legacies, and supporting Philadelphia nonprofits.
