The Elijah Straw Memorial Fund

This year, all proceeds from our event will go toward the purchase of new playground equipment for the Aspinwall Ballfield Playground at Field Ave and 5th St.!

The family of Elijah Straw is proud to announce an exciting new version of its “Elijahfest” charity fundraiser for 2017:  Pop-Up Elijahfest!  Like all Elijahfests, this new “pop-up” version will raise money for the Elijah Straw Memorial Fund

When and where is the event? 

Like last year, Elijahfest will be at Community Swim Club (CSC) in O’Hara Township, and the date will be the first hot, dry weekend day after July 4, 2017.  There is no exact date now because, well, that’s where the “pop-up” part comes in!  See the next question:

Why “Pop-Up” Elijahfest? 

This year, we wanted to “take the party to the people,” as it were.  Rather than throw a party and hope for a big turnout, we are taking the party to a big turnout, and avoiding the rain risk!  We will watch the weather reports, and make a “Tentatively On” announcement the Wednesday before, and on the following Saturday, sunny skies permitting, we will announce a “definitely on’!  It will be a grand “flash mob” charity fundraiser in July, with a built-in large turnout!

What activities will Elijahfest include this year? 

Community Swim ClubSwimming, basketball, tennis, wiffleball, water aerobics, dinosaur walk, coloring, music, prizes, and last but not least, our hugely popular Chinese auction of gift baskets!

How can I contribute? 

Gift baskets: Please email Jen Evashavik at jenevash1@gmail.com soon to make arrangements for pick up during June.

Monetary donations: We appreciate donations in any amount, and any over $100 will receive a large yard sign advertising the business, entity, or person making the donation to be displayed at the pool throughout the event.

Time donations: This is important and much needed for the "pop-up" theme. We will need volunteers who can be ready with a few days notice, so the more people we have on our volunteer list, the better!

This year, all proceeds from our event will go toward the purchase of new playground equipment for the Aspinwall Ballfield Playground at Field Ave and 5th St.!
