2019 Draft Day Gala

Combining the glamour of a society ball with the energy, excitement and drama of the NBA draft, the Germination Project’s 2019 Draft Day Gala will introduce the newest class of Germination Project Fellows to the region’s civic community, and provide an early affirmation both of the esteem in which we hold them and the expectations set upon their future achievements. The Gala is also an opportunity to recognize and celebrate Philadelphia’s established civic leaders. With the presentation of the annual ICON Award, the Germination Project honors luminaries in medicine, business and philanthropy, recognizing their accomplishments and inspiring our next generation of trailblazers.
