The Historical Society of Pennsylvania hosts the 2023 Founder’s Award Dinner on Saturday, May, 13th. Join us as we honor CNN’s Jake Tapper with the Founder’s Award for exemplary service to the humanities.

We will also honor two Heritage Award recipients — Dr. Carmen Febo San Miguel and the Connelly Foundation — for their contributions to the future heritage in the Philadelphia region.

This special evening—HSP’s biggest fundraiser of the year — will include a cocktail reception, dinner, and awards ceremony. The evening’s proceeds support HSP’s mission to collect, preserve, and ensure access to the irreplaceable historical evidence found within our collections.
