About Hair O’ The Dog

Hair O’ The Dog was founded in 1994 by longtime friends Daniel Cronin and Robert Molinaro, who are also the co-founders of Chorus Communications, a Technology Consulting firm located in Old City Philadelphia. The first Hair O’ The Dog was held at the former 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, Hair O’ The Dog was born. The founders were thrilled with the original 100 person turn out and each year since, this glamorous-gala has grown tremendously in both size and prominence. Today, the event attracts thousands of partygoers and is considered the longest-running black-tie affair in the country. The event attracts not only local but national celebrities, athletes, and media personalities. Past attendees include but are not limited to; NBC’s Meteorologist Sheena Parveen, Tony Bruno, Comedian Joe Conklin, former Governor Ed Rendell, Mob Wives Alicia DiMichele along with multiple Philadelphia Eagles players and Cheerleaders, Sixers and Flyers players. Held each year at an exclusive Philadelphia venue, a portion of the event proceeds are given to various local charities such as: Big Brothers and 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, The Claddagh Fund, THON, and Bianca’s Kids.
