Dinner and Dialogue, Jared Solomon

Philly Set Go launched "Dinner and Dialogue” with the purpose of bringing millennials together with elected officials and community leaders in various neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia.  These dinners have been a wonderful exchange of relationships and ideas for a better Philadelphia for all Philadelphians.
