Centennial Event

In October 22, the Leon H. Sullivan Charitable Trust (“the Trust”) will partner with the City of Philadelphia to recognize and celebrate Rev. Dr. Sullivan’s 100th birthday with events and activities in his honor. We will be sharing details of these exciting events in the near future.

We are inviting organizations and institutions in Philadelphia to join the Trust and the City of Philadelphia in honoring Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sullivan’s centennial legacy by planning your own celebratory events to occur in October 2022. Events could focus on celebrating Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sullivan’s life, entrepreneurship, job training, community-based economic

development, empowerment in the Black community, or other themes that Rev. Dr. Leon H. Sullivan represented. Your events will be included in the Leon H. Sullivan 100th Birthday Celebration Calendar, which will be distributed to the media and promoted city-wide.

The deadline to include your event in the Leon H. Sullivan 100th Birthday Celebration Calendar is Monday, September 12, 2022. Click here to submit your event.
