$4,000 Already Raised for Cradles to Crayons Through Conshohocken Restaurant Week


The Conshohocken Restaurant Week Preview Party, which benefits Cradles to Crayons, sold out last week.  The 200 tickets were $20.00 a piece resulting in a $4,000.00 donation to the charity that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play.  Each ticket sold enables a backpack, filled with school supplies and other items, to be provided to a child.

Conshohocken Restaurant Week will be held on September 17-23 and will feature 16 participating restaurants in Conshohocken and West Conshohocken offering $20.00 and/or $35.00 fixed priced menus.  Participating restaurants are the 401 Diner, Blackfish Restaurant, Flanigan’s Boat House, The Great American Pub, Gypsy Saloon, Spamps, Isabella, Piatto Grille, Fayette Street Grille, Guppy’s Good Times, Stella Blu, Spampinato’s, Pepperoncini, Totaro’s, Trattoria Totaro and The StoneRose.  Menus for each restaurant will begin to be released on August 31st.

The Preview Party, being held September 10th, will include the participating restaurants sampling their menus, complimentary beer from Victory Brewing Company, complimentary wine and live music from Lele Rose.  Gift bags from Edwards-Freeman Nut Company, filled with items and discounts from other local businesses, will be provided to all attendees.

In addition the Preview Party, Conshohocken Restaurant Week and Conicelli Honda are partnering to collect items for Cradles to Crayons during the month of September at the dealership.  There will also be the opportunity to guess how many items are inside a car and win $250.00 in gift certificates to Conshohocken Restaurant Week restaurants.  More details about the how to donate items and how to enter the contest will be released soon.
