This year, King of Prussia District decided to take fundraising for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) through KOP Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP to the next level with the introduction of the Community Champions Program. Community Champions are businesses who have committed to making a donation to CHOP through the campaign, are participating in Dress Down Day on March 11, or are hosting their own fundraisers for CHOP. The KOP business community has stepped up in a BIG way, with over 37 companies joining the campaign!

Park Square, a luxury multi-family housing development in Moore Park KOP, decided to get creative with their fundraising by hosting a Valentine’s Day themed “We Heart CHOP” event on February 13. About 100 residents joined in on a night filled with fun, delicious food and decadent desserts. The lobby was decked out in pink and red décor, complete with an upbeat v-day playlist and games like giant Connect Four and table-sized Tic Tac Toe. Residents had a blast with a build-your-own taco bar courtesy of Wild Blue Catering, and enjoyed desserts donated by Morton’s The Steakhouse (participants in KOP Restaurant Week, coming up March 9-15).

An impressive raffle basket with goodies from Chaddsford Winery, Godiva Chocolates, Eden Day Spa & Salon and a gift certificate from Morton’s The Steakhouse generated generous donations from attendees.

In total, Park Square residents and staff donated $600 to CHOP through KOP Restaurant Week and KOP Shops for CHOP’s Community Champions Program. Gina Cuiffo, Assistant Community Director, expressed, “We are so proud to be Community Champions and we look forward to continuing this excellent tradition.”
