This one-of-a-kind celebratory dinner honors the unique heritage and diverse communities that define Philadelphia as the first World Heritage City in the United States.
Enjoy a high-spirited evening, including live entertainment, cocktails, dinner, and the opportunity to network with more than 500 internationally-minded guests and distinguished leaders from throughout the Philadelphia region!

The event also features a special keynote address from our honoree, Vernon Odom, retired reporter, WPVI-TV/6abc, Philadelphia.

Vernon Odom has been with WPVI-TV/6abc in Philadelphia for more than 40 years, covering an endless list of major news stories, including all the presidential campaigns since 1976.

Odom has reported from Latin America, Europe, and Africa, most notably the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and the unbanning of the ANC in 1990; later the first free election in South Africa in 1994, the U.S. invasion of Somalia in 1992 and Glasnost in the Soviet Union in 1986.

He joined the Action News team after working as an anchor, reporter, and talk show host for the ABC affiliate in Atlanta for 6 years, where he had covered various phases of the civil rights movement in the south, and the early political campaigns of such eventual national figures as Jimmy Carter, Andrew Young, Julian Bond, and Maynard Jackson.

Don’t miss your chance to meet this living legacy!
