Philadelphia, PA—Diversity takes center stage at the AARP Multicultural Ball being held on Friday November 18, 2011 at the Shops at Liberty Place beginning at 8:00 pm.  AARP members and community partners will celebrate multiculturalism in the Southeast region with a night full of international cuisine, cultural entertainment, live music and dancing.  The evening will feature over 150 performers representing the diverse cultures within the Philadelphia metropolitan area. 


AARP’s Multicultural Ball celebrates the rich and diverse cultures within our region, recognizing and accepting our individual differences — race and ethnicity, sexual orientation/identity, gender, physical and mental disabilities, socioeconomic status and religion.  “This special event pays homage to the changing landscape in our communities and the vital role of the 50+ population in our country,” says Ed Ryan, AARP Pennsylvania Interim State President.


AARP has 1.8 million members in Pennsylvania, and AARP’s community outreach efforts support its mission of positive social change within the changing cultural landscape of the state.
