As we’ve learned more about the hurricane devastation in Florida, Texas and the Caribbean, it’s become clear that these communities will need many helping hands to ease human suffering and help rebuild their communities.
To help Jenkintown pitch in with the recovery effort, Mayor Foley and some other residents and local businesses are holding a fundraiser.
This event will be held Saturday, September 23, from 7-12, at Uptown at the Piazza, on Town Square beneath Marzano’s Ristorante. Admission is $50 per person and includes food, drink, and live music. You can buy tickets online, or just make a donation, at http://www.bit.ly/jtowncares.
All proceeds will benefit Pittsburgh-based My Brother’s Brother Foundation (brothersbrother.org), an organization that collects in-kind donations and surplus items, and ensures they get to where they are most needed in disaster zones. The group, operating since 1958, holds a 100% donor efficiency rating from Forbes Magazine.
This event would not be possible without the generosity of local merchants and residents. Use of the Uptown club was donated by Lindy Communities, and food and drink will be provided by Leila’s Bar and Restaurant, Marzano’s Ristorante, Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company, West Avenue Grille, Dajia’s Super Snacks and your friends and neighbors.
Live music by Camera Thief, Basil Khan & the Unnamed Band, Too Short Otis, Graveyard Ruckus, and Alex Bartlett.
Please contact Mayor Foley at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
