CH Meals on Wheels Fundraiser April 25

    If the Phillies opening games have put you in the mood for a tailgate party, Chestnut Hill Meals on Wheels (CHMOW) has got one you won’t want to miss. On Thursday, April 25, CHMOW will host its 3rd Annual Tailgate Party, an informal evening for adults to enjoy, at the Flourtown Country Club.The theme, Fighting Hunger is a Team Sport, reflects CHMOW’s mission and community-based approach. There will be something for everyone including new cars to inspect, DJ entertainment, delicious food and drink, tailgate games, a photo booth and a silent auction. Attendees will have an opportunity to bid on a ski package to Sun Valley, Idaho; a trip to Boston with tickets to a Phillies/Red Sox game; a year of date nights with restaurant gift cards, a kids’ summer camp package and much more. Join your neighbors and friends from 6:30 to 9:30 pm for the ultimate tailgate, having fun while helping area residents who are homebound. Founded in 1975, Chestnut Hill Meals on Wheels is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to meeting the daily nutritional needs of area neighbors challenged by illness, disability or age. Last year’s CHMOW tailgate fundraiser raised $24,000, enough to deliver 3,429 meals. “This year we need you more than ever,” reports CHMOW’s Executive Director, Lynne Mason. “We struggle to maintain the lifeline of food and human companionship to area homebound residents who rely on our services.” In 2012, successful fundraising efforts enabled CHMOW to deliver nearly 20,000 meals to individuals living in Chestnut Hill, Wyndmoor, Mounty Airy, Flourtown, Erdenheim, Oreland and parts of Germantown. So get ready to party and support CHMOW team’s fight against hunger on Thursday, April 25th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Flourtown Country Club.
