A 150th anniversary is something to celebrate in a big way, and that’s exactly what Einstein Healthcare Network did, with a star-studded gala at the National Constitution Center.

Seinfeld star Jason Alexander served as master of ceremonies, and one of the greatest performers of all time, Diana Ross, took to the stage for a performance that, shall we say, rocked the house last Thursday night.

Guests danced to music, dined on delicious food, and generally partied into the night.

We have photos from the event, and we’d like to share them with you. (Photos by Wes Hilton)
