Thanks and Giving

It seems a trifle peculiar to send someone on a walking tour of a medical facility. But in the case of Pennsylvania Hospital, the oldest such institution in the land, history, architecture, and landscaping combine in making yet another of Benjamin Franklin's legacies a singular destination. The indefatigable Franklin raised money to help found the hospital in 1751, in conjunction with Dr. Thomas Bond. When the United States declared independence from Great Britain, the hospital was already 25 years old. Franklin also served on the hospital's original Board of Managers, as well as being its first secretary and second president.

Thanks go out to the happy ebay auction winner of the Benjamin Franklin tshirt. The bid price of $117.91 rather than the purchase price was paid by the winner. The bid price has been matched by ROCapparel, LLC and has been donated to St. Davids' of Hanover Pa. building fund. Please check in soon for details of the next auction. Thank You.
