Hair O’ The Dog 2019: An Epic Celebration for a Major Milestone


Anyone who’s had the great fortune of attending Hair O’ The Dog – or anyone who’s ever heard of Hair O’ The Dog – has come to associate this annual staple of the Philadelphia social calendar with superlatives.

It’s epic! It’s extreme! It’s glamorous! It’s extraordinary! It’s unforgettable!

When it comes to recapping Hair O’ The Dog 2019, those words might be selling it short. On Saturday, January 19, 2019, Chorus Communications hosted the 25th edition of its trademark black-tie event – The Best Event in Philly, according to the Philadelphia Nightlife Awards – with the kind of spectacular soirée you’d expect on a silver anniversary.

T-Pain and Party Favor rocked the house at the Crystal Tea Room with their heart-pumping performances, sending thousands of the top “dogs” in the telecommunications industry straight to the dancefloor.

Sheila Hess from Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s office was also on hand to present Chorus Communications co-founders Daniel Cronin and Robert Molinaro, as well as Buffy Harakidas, the company’s Director of Marketing, with a special citation from the city that recognized the quarter century they’ve spent supporting charities in the area.

Benefiting Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia

In keeping with a tradition started back in 1995, when Hair O’ The Dog was just a small shindig with 100 guests, we were proud to donate some of our proceeds to a local charity. Hair O’ The Dog 2019 benefited Morris Animal Refuge in Philadelphia, known as America’s First Animal Shelter, a nonprofit organization that saves the lives of animals every day.

Hair O’ The Dog 2019 was, as always, a celebration of our company, our partners, our sponsors, and the entire telecommunications industry. It was a celebration of philanthropy, and it was everything we envisioned when we started hosting this event 25 years ago.

As presenting sponsor of the event, we are eternally grateful to our Hair O’ The Dog guests, vendors, performers, and corporate sponsors for making this year another smashing success. Our sincere thanks go to Vonage, which brought our guests the Tech Odyssey lounge, Alura, Mettel, Neutrality, TBI, TBX, Carousel Industries, and Telesystem.
