The 38th Annual Victory Gallop-Saturday, June 17 at 6:00 p.m.

Gather with Thorncroft as we celebrate our 38th year of the Victory Gallop! Chairs Andrew and Sandy Goodman welcome our community to join together for a lively, black-tie evening in the spirit of friendship and in the mission of inclusion.

2023 offers an exquisite venue for our seated dinner, dancing, and silent auction, welcoming our guests to The Gold Ballroom at the internationally renowned HOTEL DU PONT. Once the headquarters for the DuPont Company, the hotel is a landmark example of Italian Renaissance architecture. Rich in history and tradition, guests will find themselves taken back to the Gilded Age, an era of elegance and style.


Limited seating available. Please reserve your seat with Head of Philanthropy Mikaela Potrako at 610.644.1963. Individual ticketing begins at $500 per individual.


A highlight of the social calendar, the Victory Gallop offers our sponsors exclusive marketing opportunities, business promotion, and networking opportunities while aligning with an important cause and engaging with your community.
