Old Pine Community Center is proud to announce the 11th annual Mardi Gras Party & Silent Auction happening on March 1st, 2019. This yearly event is a fun and exciting celebration that will feature a live band, entertainment, and delicious catered food and drink. It’s also an opportunity for you and the community to come together and celebrate what the Center does for the city of Philadelphia each and every year.
Local businesses and organizations have generously donated a variety of gifts including event tickets, trips, and hotel accommodations which will all be up for grabs. The silent auction is a great opportunity to obtain high-value items at an affordable price, while at the same time giving back to a great cause. Highlights from last year’s auction included Disney World tickets and a resort vacation.
The proceeds from the auction will help fund outreach programs at the Center, including, but not limited to, The Homeless Clothing Closet, #SHINE, and our youth programming. In the last year alone, the Center’s homeless outreach programs have provided over 8,000 meals and 5,000 articles of clothing to those in need. In addition, we were able to raise over 600 toys for Southwark School and provided 40 winter clothing packages to The Veterans Group over the winter.
Please mark your calendars for this once a year event at the Center. Advertising and sponsorship opportunities for businesses and organizations are also available for the event. If you’re interested or have any questions, please call 215-627-2493.
