About the event
Programs Employing People (PEP) began 47 years ago with the creation of Camp PEP by a group of mothers who wanted a specialized summer camp for their children with intellectual disabilities. Today, PEP makes it possible for over 300 people with disabilities annually to have the choice to work at paid jobs, attend literacy and computer classes, volunteer, enjoy social and recreational activities, and have a great experience at Camp PEP.
To help support these programs and to strengthen our clients relationships in the community, we invite you to become a sponsor of the 5th Annual King of the Hill Bowling Tournament and Fundraiser on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at our award-winning PEP Bowl located at 1200 South Broad Street at Federal Street, Philadelphia, PA.
As in year’s past, the tournament will consist of two competitions: the Novice division for casual bowlers from 1-3:00pm and the King of the Hill division for more skilled bowlers from 4-7:00pm. All guests will enjoy a catered buffet and an open bar serving Yards artisan brewed beer, wine and soft drinks. Great prizes will be available for our 200 expected competitors. Individual registration starts at $50, and we have sold out in the past.
Why should you sponsor?
Founded in 1969, Programs Employing People’s (PEP) mission is to provide education, recreation, vocational training, and job placement services to people with intellectual disabilities like Austism and Downs syndrome, and to strengthen their relationships in the community. Over 300 people are served annually through PEP.
By sponsoring our King of the Hill Bowling Tournament, you will help make it possible for people living with a disability to be able to find and keep a job, increasing their chances for independence, personal accomplishment and acceptance. Things that we all strive for......
My name is Michael Domer, I am the Director of Development for Programs Employing People. I have been a nonprofit fundraiser for over 30 years. I have been involved with numerous fundraising events over the years from golf and bowling tournaments, to flea markets and craft fairs. There are always a few challenges with each event, but in the end, after we were able to raise valuable dollars for my nonprofit, there is a great feeling of acomplishment. Organizing events are fun and very rewarding!
