Family, close friends, Philadelphia sports players and other professional athletes alike gathered to welcome #10, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, back to the City of Brotherly Love Friday, June 7. 

The "Welcome Back To Philadelphia" party began with a cocktails before guests enjoyed dinner and an after party with DJ Pmon behind the turntables. Part of the proceeds of the party benefit the DeSean Jackson Foundation.

The mission of Jackson's foundation, which was co-founded with his mother Gayle Jackson, is "to advance the common good by caring, cultivating, collaborating and advocating–One Team, One Purpose." 

Saturday morning Jackson was up early as his foundation was holding a free football clinic for 400 area youth.

Below are some photos of the party.
