First, Kristen speaks with Erika Kaplan, a Senior Matchmaker at Three Day Rule, a matchmaking service popular in many cities that launched in Philadelphia this year. Three Day Rule is a modern take on matchmaking with personalized attention, hand-selected matches and valuable date coaching. Single over the holidays? Erika is here to help.

The longest running black tie event in the country, the party will feature gourmet food by Wolfgang Puck Catering, top shelf libations, and entertainment by the likes of Dillon Francis and Grammy Award winner Lil’ Jon. All this fun, and for a great cause too. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Bianca’s Kids, a nonprofit helping kids in need.
