SOLD OUT! 95th Anniversary Celebration Party
October 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm
We’re celebrating 95 years of successful stewardship of the Wissahickon Valley Park with Love Where You Live, a 95th Anniversary Celebration Party at Erdenheim Farm on October 11th, 2019.
Join us as we enjoy locally-sourced fare, all for the benefit of Philadelphia’s urban oasis, the Wissahickon Valley Park. At this milestone event, we’ll honor individuals essential to the fulfillment of FOW’s mission. FOW’s long-standing Wissahickon Award will be presented to Past President Cindy Affleck and the organization’s Founders Award will be presented to David Haas.
Erdenheim Farm, a working farm, is owned and preserved by Peter and Bonnie McCausland and plays a critical environmental role. Erdenheim Farm is a significant green space that embraces a portion of the Wissahickon Creek and forms part of the greenway system that begins at the creek’s source in Montgomery Township and extends south through 11 municipalities ending in the Schuylkill River. The Wissahickon and its tributaries are an important source of clean water for Philadelphia, and for this reason have been a focus for environmental protection for many years.
This event is sold out!
