KOP Restaurant Week & KOP Shops for CHOP
Six years ago, King of Prussia District and a handful of KOP restaurants came together to start a restaurant week to drive reservations during a traditionally show time while raising money for a worthwhile organization. Selecting Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was an easy decision. The nation’s first hospital devoted exclusively to the care of children, CHOP has fostered medical discoveries and innovations that have improved pediatric healthcare and saved countless children’s lives. Families from all over the region are treated at CHOP’s KOP Speciality Care & Surgery Center. Also in The Village at Valley Forge, CHOP is under construction on their first inpatient hospital outside of Philadelphia, which is expected to open late 2021.
In 2018, King of Prussia District launched KOP Shops for CHOP in conjunction with KOP Restaurant Week, inviting retailers to donate a portion of their sales to CHOP, too. Many also offer special discounts or promotions during their donation day to further increase sales. Today, KOP’s fine dining restaurants, fast casual restaurants and retailers remain steadfast in their commitment to support CHOP. In the last five years, this campaign has raised over $152,500 for this incredible institution.
