On December 2, 2016, in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center, the third annual Comcast NBCUniversal I’ll Be Home for Christmas: A Salute to the Military and First Responders will usher in the holiday season for 2,000 members of the service community with a night of magical music and generosity of spirit. This very special event also marks the culmination of the Philly POPS 2016 Salute Series.
This benefit concert takes place on opening night of the 2016 "A Philly POPS Christmas" concert series. Individual tickets for this event on December 2 are not available for purchase.
