Sunrise of Philadelphia Fundraiser 2017
Thu, April 6, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Last year was a challenging yet rewarding one for Sunrise. During a budget impasse in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in part because of your help, we could continue to serve students in our various out-of-time school programs despite limited funding from some of our sources. Last year’s challenges brought to light the importance of our Sunraiser and renewed our determination to serve students and their families.
On Thursday, April 6, 2017 Sunrise will hold its annual fundraising event. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 to provide supplemental academic support for our students. The fundraiser will afford us time to celebrate with our partner and friends. This time will also allow us to raise the unrestricted funds needed to enhance our important work. In today’s bare bones funding environment, operating budgets from grants and programs are not enough. On average it cost us $5,000 per student, of which we have to raise a portion. Your contribution allows us to provide quality programming so we can make a difference. We need your support!
You can learn more about our programs and the success of our students, please visit our website www.sunriseofphila.org or follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn). Thank you for considering being a sponsor for our annual event. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Anthony LaMorgia at 215-952-2730. On behalf of the entire Sunrise community, I would like to thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you in the spring.
