June Event - Fado with Project H.O.M.E.

Join us on Tuesday, June 7th for our happy hour at Fado (15th and Locust) benefiting Project H.O.M.E,!  We kept this one close to the Broad Street Line for those of you en route to the Phillies game.  And for those of you who simply want to watch the game, take advantage of Fado's many televisions!  A $10 donation to Project H.O.M.E. gets you one free drink and an hour of free appetizers courtesy of Fado from 5:30-8pm.

May Event - Tavern on Broad with Philabundance!

Put our second event on your radar and more importantly, firmly in your calendar!  We'll be gathering at Tavern on Broad (on Broad between Walnut and Locust) and proceeds will benefit Philabundance*.  Like last time, the donation is $10 and goes straight to the charity.  TOB is providing one free drink, half price drinks and half price appetizers through 8pm for each attendee.  Each $10 donation will provide 20 meals to those in need across the Delaware Valley! 

And guess what else - we will be raffling off three tickets to see the Phillies/Dodgers game at Citizen's Bank Park on June 7th!  Raffle tickets will be an additional $10 donation - or $40 for 5 raffle tickets.  Tickets are in Section 421 - right over home plate!!

And because we know you'll have a great time, you'll want to Save the Date (unless you win those Phillies tickets) for Tuesday, June 7th's event benefiting Project H.O.M.E..  

*Philabundance is the region’s largest hunger relief organization.  In 2009, they acquired 21 million pounds of food, distributing 17 million pounds across the Delaware Valley and exporting 4 million pounds to assist other area food banks.
They serve low income residents at risk of hunger and malnutrition, of which 23% are children and 16% are senior citizens. They get food directly into the communities though their direct services programs or through their network of agencies. These agencies include food cupboards, neighborhood distributions, shelters, emergency kitchens and various social service agencies. Philabundance provides a reliable source of food to 9 counties in the Delaware Valley.
