Around 200 adults, young adults and kids packed around the pavilion for a lovely evening of live music. You’ll find photos on Facebook and a video capturing some of the magic as Jeffrey allowed some young performers play air guitar alongside him. Members of the PFCA, Park Improvement Committee and other volunteers sold concessions to fundraise for the Park Improvement Fund. In addition, we held a 50/50 raffle where the winner, Lianna Cervo, daughter of John Cervo donated all but $1 of her nearly $200 winnings back to Improvement Fund! It was a tremendous act of generosity and will not be forgotten! Thank you! All in all, we raised $657 at the concert! Please support the local businesses that donated for our cause: Tony Roni’s of Havertown, Krispy Kreme, Havertown Beverage and Giant Food Stores. Philly Soft Pretzel of Broomall extended a discount to us. Thank you to our concession sponsors, the event coordinators Kelly Music for Life and the concert volunteers and sponsors--Adam Mechanical, Nolan Painting, Oakmont Pub, Gutter Helmet, iRadio Philly and Haverford Township Civic Council. And let’s not forget, thank you to all who attended! It’s always wonderful to pair a great time with a great cause! Three more summer park performances remain throughout the Township.
