Lagos and The Ultimate Flyers Fan Pendant
Nationally known jeweler Steven Lagos and the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation devised a unique way to raise money for charity. Lagos developed three individual dog tags with the Philadelphia Flyers logo on each-one in silver, one gold and one in black and orange gemstones.
The NHL approved dog tags were unveiled at a party held in the penthouse at 2 Liberty Place. Along with the entire team and wives, after a sneak preview, the pendants went on sale at both the Lagos Walnut Street store and at the charity kiosk at the Wachovia Center.

Philadelphia Arts and Education Partnership (PAEP) teamed up with the National Liberty Museum and the National Constitution Center to bring "Let Art Freedom Ring" to life.
Five classes of Philadelphia school children imagined and created their version of a 21st century bell. Along with an art mentor, they visually depicted what art freedom means to them.
The 6 foot tall life-sized bells were unveiled during a gala at the National Liberty Museum and then were moved to the National Constitution Center in time for Welcome America and a party with Universal Studios. On display during the summer, the public was encouraged to vote for its favorite bell online. The winner: Sharswood.
In 2011 the promotion will get even bigger...with the target of 13 bells which represent the original 13 colonies.
