Christmas at PPMC

Face-paintFor over a decade, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and the West Powelton Concerned Community Council have partnered together to host a Christmas celebration for children in the neighborhood surrounding PPMC. This year’s event – made possible once again by a generous donation from BBLM Architects – included visits from Elmo, Barney, Jazzy the Clown, a magician, and face painters. The afternoon ended on a high note when Santa Claus himself appeared with presents in hand for each of the children! Please enjoy a slideshow of photos from the day.
