We hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving Weekend. In light of the generosity of the holiday season (and all year long), we’re very excited to have the opportunity to raise funding for Philadelphia’s many amazing charities. That being said, today is the last day to bid on the original Steve Jobs portrait created by David Garibaldi at the BCA Breakfast In The Evening. If you’re interested in raising money for your favorite charity and you’d like to own this one of a kind original artwork then you can visit the BCA ONLINE AUCTION. Happy bidding!
We would like to wish all our BCA Family a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Holiday! We’re Thankful for all of our amazing BCA members, their commitment to building relationships, and their generosity. Have a wonderful holiday weekend and don’t forget, if you’re interested in David Garibaldi’s Steve Jobs Portrait you can bid to raise money for charity by visiting the BCA online auction.

Thanks to our amazing partners; Advanced Staging Productions, Brulee Catering, and the National Constitution Center for making it such a special night.
David Garibaldi was not only an amazing and talented artist but reminded us to live with passion and purpose. Paint is not only just a can to David, it is something bigger, Passion, Action, Intention, New, and Teach.

Yesterday’s Roundtable hosted by The OMNIA Group Architects was just what the Dr. ordered. Members discussed the importance of R&R, in the topic “Where do you go to recharge?” A big thank you to Brian Mann, Gene Grimaldi and Marie Grimaldi for being such great hosts. Members realized they all struggle with disconnecting from work, and were reminded of how important it is to have a place to relax in order to be at their best.

Thank you Safian & Rudolph for a great Roundtable. This morning’s Roundtable was hosted by our favorite jewelers, Hy and Richie Goldberg of Safian & Rudolph Jewelers. The topic of How to Motivate Employees through different compensation structures was very thought provoking. Safian & Rudolph has the “trust factor” and a company culture that truly is one of the most valuable assets in the diamond industry. From a social media campaign to business development suggestions, thank you to all the members who put effort into today’s discussion. Congratulations again Hy and Richie for your continued success you deserve it!
