2021 Love Back Ball

April 10, 2021

 

The Love Back Ball is an annual event hosted by the committee members of Giveadelphia. The Love Back Ball is inspired by the local communities in which young professionals of the Philadelphia area live and serve. In an effort to give back, The Love Back Ball combines fun, connection, and charity in one premier event. Each year, the Giveadelphia committee nominates a different charity to receive the benefits from the ball. Party goers are not only encouraged to give back through ticket sales, but also through donations, drives, fundraising and supporting events throughout the year.

 

This year, the Love Back Ball will take place both in person and virtually on Saturday, April 10th.

About Giveadelphia

Giveadelphia is a community of young professionals based in the heart of Philadelphia whose mission is to support local nonprofits through charity work and unique gatherings held virtually and throughout the city. Founded in 2019, our goal is to make the world a better place one philanthropic event at a time, and we do that together here in the city of Brotherly Love.

The charities we support are hyper-local and lesser known. We believe that by lifting up these nonprofits, our community has a greater chance to build and prosper from one generation to the next.

Meet the team here.

About YSRP

The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project (YSRP) uses direct service and policy advocacy to transform the experiences of children prosecuted in the adult criminal justice system, and to ensure fair and thoughtful resentencing and reentry for individuals who were sentenced to life without parole as children (“Juvenile Lifers”). YSRP partners with court-involved youth and Juvenile Lifers, their families, and lawyers to develop holistic, humanizing narratives that mitigate the facts of each case; get cases transferred to the juvenile system or resentenced; and make crucial connections to community resources providing education, healthcare, housing, and employment. YSRP also provides training on mitigation, and recruits, trains and supervises students and other volunteers to assist in this work. Their ultimate goal is to keep children out of adult jails and prisons.

Mt. Joy

The indie rock band Mt. Joy, which blends together blues, Americana and folk music, was created by Philly-natives Matt Quinn and Sam Cooper. Old childhood friends, they chose the name Mt. Joy as an ode to a mountain in Valley Forge National Park. Steeped in folk-rock tradition and powered by the intuitive creative connection between Quinn and Cooper, this collaboration will have you searching for your check book while you research upcoming tour dates.
