A note from Preston Elliot:
“I wanted to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to each and every person who found the time to contribute, volunteer or support this year’s Preston and Steve Camp Out for Hunger.
This was our 19th year and it only keeps getting better. We spent five days camped out in a parking lot asking for your help and you went above and beyond! This year we managed to collect 1,367,384 (yes MILLION) pounds (683 tons) of food for Philabundance. That is just over one hundred TONS more that we received last year! The largest food drive in the country! And it was soooo much fun!
From Villanova’s Jay Wright winning our City 6 Pop-a-shot challenge, to live performances from Dave Matthews’ Boyd Tinsley and The Record Company. To M Night Shamalan, 76er’s shoot around, Shinedown, Sixx A.M., The Eagles Connor Barwin and John Dorenbos. To 130 Jeeps and 160 Porches showing up at the same time. To the endless parade of TV personalities and friends of the show. If you missed it you missed one hell of a party! Would love to see you there for next years extravaganza. Again thank you to all those who made it out. You rock!!!!!!”
With your help and tireless efforts, the 2016 Camp Out for Hunger was our most successful event yet!
The totals again:
That’s over 683 TONS of food
Plus $74,870 (with more coming)
1 pound = 1 meal, $1 = 2 meals
WAY TO GO, PHILLY, HIGH FIVES FOR EVERYONE!
