Sonesta Rittenhouse

1800 Market Street

Dear Fellow Alumni & Friends,
Join us on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 5 PM for The Associated Alumni of Central High School’s Annual Meeting and Dinner at the Sonesta Rittenhouse Square (1800 Market St., Philadelphia).
We are honored to announce our two inimitable speakers for the evening’s program: Jane Golden, Founder and Executive Director of Mural Arts Philadelphia and Alumni Spotlight: Trang Do (261), CBS 3 Eyewitness News General Assignment Reporter.

The Annual Meeting & Dinner is the organization’s signature event of the year. Attracting up to 400 alumni, students, administrators, faculty, and staff a year, the Annual Meeting features the coveted Disharoon award ceremony, AACHS President’s report and the election of officers and members of the AACHS governing body, the Board of Managers.
This year’s dinner will feature a cocktail reception hour beginning at 5PM, followed immediately by our program and dinner. Come out to hear from our two speakers as they impress upon us on their personal and professional experiences in the field of media and arts and how they have positively affected the city and community. The program will also include an update from CHS President Tim McKenna on the state of the school.

Ticket Prices are: $65 for classes 274 through 278 and CHS Faculty and Staff and $90 for classes 273 and prior.

Meet some of our remarkable current students leaves a lasting impression and receive first-hand accounts on the great things happening at Central today including our exciting capital project to improve Central for the students of tomorrow. As always, you can share this wonderful experience by sponsoring a current student for $85, whether you attend or not.
