The St. James Honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA, PA — The St. James honored Breast Cancer Awareness Month by hosting the official wrap-up party for the LIGHTS FOR THE CURE campaign, in partnership with the Philadelphia Affiliate of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and CBS 3 Women of Eyewitness News.

The cocktail reception, held at the historical Reynolds-Morris House in Center City, was a rhapsody in pink. The outside courtyard adjacent to The St. James site was bathed in a glow of pink lights that emanated from The St. James, as the building joined the campaign, which has turned the Philadelphia skyline pink for the second year in a row. Guests enjoyed "Fleur de Champagne" Rose, courtesy of Perrier Jouet, hors d'oeuvres and lounge tunes by DJ Russ Homan.

"The St. James salutes 'The Power of Pink,'" said John R. Noonan, development manager for The St. James. "We are proud to have hosted the official wrap-up party for this important campaign in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month."

The event drew an array of city officials and VIPs including: District Attorney Lynne Abraham; Deputy Commissioner Carmen Paris; Dr. Nancy Morgan, the representative for Mayor John Street; Diane L. Hockstein, esquire and President of the Philadelphia Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation; and CBS 3 anchors, Tamsen Fadal, Alycia Lane, and Kathy Orr.

The St. James, Philadelphia's premiere residential tower, standing at 45 stories, was designed to set a new standard for luxury living by offering dramatic new uses of interior, retail and office space as well as a restaurant site. It is home to the most magnificent views of Washington Square, the Delaware River and the cityscapes that Center City has to offer. The St. James will be open for occupancy in spring 2004.
