A night of remembrance — and fundraising:
November 10 at the Pen & Pencil Club in Philadelphia
There will be free food, a cash bar, some tears and laughs — and fundraising. Proceeds will support Phawker in perpetuity and a scholarship in Jonathan’s name at his alma mater, Moravian College.

Jonathan was a leading voice in Philadelphia journalism, music and the arts. A great friend, mentor and partner. A legendary hang. He was taken from us too soon but we have the opportunity to preserve and add to the many gifts he left behind.
