Ed Snider (April 21)
Ed Snider founded the Philadelphia Flyers hockey club and went on from there to build a large and highly successful enterprise. He was a true visionary in the sports and entertainment industry, and a towering figure in the City of Philadelphia. Among his many philanthropic causes, he served as a trustee of The Atlas Society for many years. At our 50th anniversary celebration of Atlas Shrugged in 2007, Ed gave a wonderful talk about his start in business, the impact of the novel, and his meetings with Ayn Rand.
Comcast Spectacor, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Snider Family invite fans and friends to gather at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday, April 21, to celebrate the life of Ed Snider. The event begins promptly at 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Doors to the Wells Fargo Center will open at 11:30 a.m.
