14th Annual Gravediggers' Ball

| October 26, 2018 | Parties

On October 26, 2018, The Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery hosted their 14th Annual Fundraising Gala, the Gravedigger’s Ball, at the Masonic Temple in Center City. Guests arrived in costumes or formal wear and enjoyed an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, dinner stations, live entertainment, and dancing throughout the evening. There were raffles, a silent auction, and the opportunity to explore the incredible architecture of the Masonic Temple and its ornately decorated lodge rooms. Proceeds from the event benefit the preservation, maintenance, accessibility, and educational interpretation of Laurel Hill Cemetery, which is the first cemetery in the United States to receive the designation of National Historic Landmark.
