Mardi Gras 2019

Dear Neighbor,

Our annual Mardi Gras Fundraiser & Silent Auction will take place on March 1, 2019 at the Old Pine Community Center. This year’s goal is to raise $25,000 so that we can continue to provide programs for our youth, senior, and homeless population.

Old Pine Community Center has been serving the Greater Philadelphia community for over 40 years. So far in 2018, we have provided over 8,000 meals to the homeless or near-homeless, granted over $60,000 in scholarships to neighborhood youth through our enriching and educational youth programming. We are an important community resource; our library, meeting rooms and gymnasium are used by numerous community groups and organizations. As a local nonprofit we can’t do this without local business support.

In order to meet our fundraising goal, we are asking for help from local businesses and organizations that have a desire to uplift and empower our community. Can we count on your support this year? There are a number of ways you can support the Center and ensure we can continue to give back to our community.

As a sponsor of this event, your business will receive an entire table at our Mardi Gras fundraiser, an ad in our program booklet and be listed as a sponsor on our website, social media sites and press releases for the event. Another way to help is to purchase an ad in our program booklet. A list of sponsorship levels and advertising options is enclosed. All donations are tax deductible.

We hope that we can count on your support! To learn more about the work of the Old Pine Community Center, please check out our website at If you have any questions, please contact Jeanne Lassiter at 215-627-2493 or email the Center at

Thank you for considering our request.
