Whether you decide to unleash in the Ibiza VIP, indulge in the Sin City Vegas-inspired main ballroom, or if you want to pop bottles in the super-exclusive Miami Bottle Service lounge, HOD will be bursting with party-goers from the moment the doors open at the hotly-anticipated Bottle Service and press preview until the bark o’ dawn at LiT Ultrabar, the official after-party. Hair O’ The Dog is the most talked about, sought after extravaganza in Philly each year!
Hair O’ The Dog was created in 1995 (that’s 104 DOG years ago!) by longtime friends Daniel Cronin and Robert Molinaro. Dan and Rob are also the co-founders of Chorus Communications, a Technology Consulting firm located in Philadelphia. The first Hair O’ The Dog was held at the Tiki Club in King Of Prussia. At the party, they decided that their love of fun, combined with their whip-smart business sense, could generate income for non-profits through fundraising. From this thinking, the Hair O’ The Dog was born. Rob and Dan were thrilled with the 100 person turn out! Each year since, this glamorous-gala has grown in both size and prominence. Today, the event attracts thousands of party goers and is considered the longest running black-tie affair in the country. Held each year at an exclusive Philadelphia venue, a portion of the event proceeds are given to various local charities such as: Big Brothers, Big Sisters, The Garden of Reflection (PA’s official 9-11 memorial), The National Constitution Center, Habitat for Humanity, Project H.O.M.E., Friends of Memorial Hall Fund, the Sunshine Foundation, The Great Guy Group, The Bethesda Project, Friends Are By Your Side and The Claddagh Fund.
