On Friday, May 20, 85 neighbors, teachers, and parents gathered at Industrious Office to celebrate A NIGHT OUT FOR KIRKBRIDE! The event raised over $8,000 for the Friends of Kirkbride to support Kirkbride Elementary School at 7th St. and Dickinson St. The night included a packed silent auction with donations from over 50 local businesses, a rousing live auction, raffle baskets made by each grade, and a school-themed photobooth.
Event sponsors were Generation 3 Electric, Grace Kennedy Law, Southwark on Reed, and Project P.L.A.Y. School.
JACKSONopoly was a huge success! We had a wonderful night. Over 100 guests attended and danced the night away as we raised funds for Jackson. We were honored to have Mayor Jim Kenney and Councilman Mark Squilla attend.
We netted over $18,000.00 for Andrew Jackson Elementary. A number of projects being considered include providing STEAM curriculum/materials, anti-bully programming, and providing much-needed resources for the classrooms.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, friends and supporters. Jackson is a great school thanks to all the dedicated volunteers, teachers, students, and folks committed to providing quality public education for our students.

Congratulations to this month’s Stoop of the Month winner! Some nice creative house numbers are always a great to make your stoop unique. We love the second floor balcony on this home and the beautiful blooms! A neatly maintained hose lets you know the flowers are well cared for.
