KOP Restaurant Week & KOP Shops for CHOP feature lunch and dinner prix-fixe menus at fine dining restaurants, and donation days and deals from KOP’s fast casual restaurants and retailers.
The region’s most heartwarming dining and shopping event returns for its 9th year, this time for 12 days! KOP Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP will run March 13-24 and once again benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) King of Prussia Campus, which includes their Middleman Family Pavilion and CHOP Specialty and Urgent Care Centers. Produced by King of Prussia District and presented by SERVPRO of King of Prussia, these events have raised $290,124 for CHOP’s King of Prussia Campus since 2014.
KOP Restaurant Week features two-course lunch menus priced at $15, $20 or $25 and three-course dinner menus at $30, $40 or $50 from 19 of KOP’s fine dining restaurants, as well as donation days and deals from 10 of KOP’s fast casual restaurants. Held concurrently from March 13-24, KOP Shops for CHOP features 21 of KOP’s most generous retailers, each hosting donation days for CHOP, and many also offering special discounts.
Over the years, King of Prussia District has grown this event into a community-wide fundraiser for CHOP, extending far beyond the restaurant and retail industry. This has contributed to a steady increase in donation totals each year, from $11,500 in its first year, to $69,140 in 2022. Additional fundraising activities planned for 2023 include:
• Facebook Raffle: King of Prussia District will kick off fundraising with a Facebook fundraiser and contest March 2-16. Donors to KOP Restaurant Week’s Facebook fundraiser will be entered to win a prize pack of restaurant and retailer gift cards and products valued at several hundred dollars. Virtual entries into the contest will be sold for 1 chance for $10, 3 chances for $20 and 10 chances for $50. King of Prussia District hopes to raise $3,000 through this contest.
• Upper Merion Area School District (UMASD) Fundraising: UMASD will host a district-wide pajama day fundraiser on March 14, 2023. Students and staff across all buildings are encouraged to wear pajamas and, if possible, donate to CHOP. Last year this effort raised over $7,000 for CHOP.
• Block Party for CHOP: Sun., April 30, 1-4 PM at KOP Town Center: King of Prussia District will close out fundraising with a family-friendly block party in King of Prussia Town Center on Sunday, April 30 (rain date May 7). Main Street will close to make way for wandering characters, magicians, inflatable carnival games, fire trucks, face painting, music, balloon art and more. The Block Party is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $5 per person.
• Community Champions for CHOP: Generous businesses can pledge a donation of $300 or more to CHOP through this King of Prussia District program or can opt to host fundraisers of their own. To date, more than 18 businesses have pledged to donate through this campaign.
“King of Prussia Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP are perfect examples of how this community can work together to rally behind an important institution that touches the lives of so many,” said Eric Goldstein, President & CEO of King of Prussia District. “We are grateful for all who contribute to the success of this event and invite everyone to dine and shop for a great cause for 12 days in KOP!”
