CALLING ALL SUPERHEROS . . .
Family Promise of Monroe County is conducting a Superhero Adventure fundraiser during the annual Stroudfest festival (which is conducted by the Sherman Theater) on Saturday September 2nd 2017 from 11 am until 4 pm. The Superhero Adventure begins and ends at the Family Promise kiosk on 7th street in downtown Stroudsburg, PA.
This fun event invites adults, children, strollers, and well behaved leashed dogs “to be a hero and help save homeless families with children” by dressing up in a favorite superhero costume and walking among all the vendors at the Stroudfest festival. Registered Superheros ($10 for people, $5 for dogs, children under 3 are free) will collect “Superheros for Family Promise” stickers at many volunteer Stroudfest vendor booths, and ‘cash’ them in for prizes. Entrants who sign up online can also ask friends and relatives to sponsor them online for additional prizes. Superheros who obtain $40 or more sponsorship receive a free T-shirt, and the entrant who raises the most sponsor dollars wins a grand prize. Additional prizes include best costume and best dressed dog.
