Successful Fundraiser

The Big SandBox’s first inaugural fundraiser was a huge success. Hosted by the African American Museum in Philadelphia, the night’s festivities were characterized by great food, exhibits, live music, and a lot of positive talk and fundraising around Philadelphia’s Schools and playgrounds.

As members of the Host Committee and a sponsor for the event, E&LP was present to welcome guests and engage in positive and exciting discourse with other professionals, teachers, parents, and community leaders. Having worked with the Big SandBox on nine public school sites to date, E&LP is excited by the prospects of such a successful fundraiser and what it means for the success of the dynamic plans in place for the public schools in Philadelphia.
