We are celebrating 20 years of empowering youth and communities!

On Thursday, May 9, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM Sunrise will hold its 4th annual fundraising event at Paradiso Restaurant – 1627 East Passyunk Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19148. This year our goal is to raise $50,000. This is a special year – this is the 20th anniversary of Sunrise’s founding. The fundraiser will allow us to celebrate our success over these past 20 years with our supporters, families, staff, board members, partners, friends and the rest of our community stakeholders.

In today’s bare bones funding environment, operating budgets from grants for programs are not enough. We are asking YOU to to join us.

You can learn more about our programs and the success of our students, please visit our website www.sunriseofphila.org or follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn). Thank you for considering being a sponsor for our annual event. On behalf of the entire Sunrise community, we would like to thank you in advance for your support! We look forward to seeing you in the spring!

Your ticket to the event includes drinks, food and entertainment. More details to come!
