1. Philly Pops is presenting ”I’ll Be Home For Christmas: A Salute to the Military and First Responders” at the Kimmel Center, Philadelphia. The musical salute will run through December 19, 2017. The Philly POPS Salute Series encourages recognition of service and commitment through an expanding set of events and activities—each transformative moments of celebration for our community. Salute performances recognize the service and sacrifice of those dedicated to a collective identity of American values and tradition. On Friday, December 1, a supporter dinner took place prior to the concert, at The Prime Rib Restaurant in The Warwick Hotel, Philadelphia. Sam Waltzer and Carol Eggert, both of Comcast’s Military & Veterans Affairs Department, paused for a photo with Dottie Giordano and her husband, Frank Giordano, president of Philly Pops, (center), during dinner at the Prime Rib.
