‘Disney:100 The Exhibition’

The world premiere of this years-in-the-making showcase opened last month at the Franklin Institute, and will remain on display until Aug. 27. The new exhibit features 10 galleries covering 15,000 square feet of the venue all in commemoration of the 100-year celebration of The Walt Disney Company. Philadelphians will be able to walk through sections highlighting a century of work from the archives of WDC, and also, a brief look into what the future holds. 

All throughout ‘Disney: 100,’ museum-goers will not only see a showcase of what the company offers, but they will also take part in the classic magic of it all with a variety of interactive activations. From sifting through where characters from the brand were first imagined, to finding the origin of the many fairytales sprinkled throughout WDC’s pop culture, to even seeing what color palettes go into creating some of the most prominent figures in the company’s history—visitors will be immersed in it all. Tickets ($25-$45) are timed and dated, and advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

This weekend from Friday, March 17, to Sunday, March 19, the Philadelphia Orchestra will perform the Grammy- and Oscar-winning score of ‘Black Panther’ while the film is projected over the stage.

 Additionally, a portion of all ticket sales will benefit the United Negro College Fund as part of a new partnership with the nonprofit and the Kimmel Cultural Campus. The performances will take place at Verizon Hall, and times vary.

Lifting Your Voice

This event comes from motivational speaker Jen Croneberger and NBC10 anchor Tracy Davidson, who have teamed up to inspire and connect women from the Main Line, Philadelphia and South Jersey. Lifting Your Voice comes at a time where Croneberger and Davidson believe women need time and space to hit the pause button, to be re-invigorated and to regain clarity about their life and goals. 

As a release states, the full-day of programming starts with breakfast and networking, and then transitions to discussions to help attendees rediscover their passion, quiet the negative voice inside, set a pathway to their intentions and help everyone feel connected to the positive women around the room. 

At the end of the day, participants will take home a Lifting Your Voice swag bag (which values over $150) with gifts, samples, discounts and more from PowerBeads by Jen, Lisi Lerch, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Loulla, Little Bags Big Impact, WOW Spiritfree Sparkling Cocktail, Fearless Restaurants, KC Essentials, POSH Collections, Dani Causey Skin and The Skin Rejuvenator.

The event ($129, and includes breakfast, lunch and the swag bag) will take place on Sunday, March 19 and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Philadelphia Country Club.
