Mr. Spring Show is coming to the Phoenixville Foundry on September 25! All his adult “kid-lings” are asked to attend.

During his 30-year teaching career at the Phoenixville Area Middle School, William Kelly produced some of the finest theatrical performances the Phoenixville Area School District had to offer.

So it should come as no surprise that Mr. Kel, as he is affectionately called, will be the man who helps the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation bring Broadway to Phoenixville in September.

Mr. Kel will be the star of the evening as PCEF presents its Fourth Annual Endowment Gala at the beautifully restored Foundry on Main Street in Phoenixville.

The gala, which begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, September 25, will raise money to help the Education Foundation further its Mission of supporting educational programming in the Phoenixville area.

Dance to the sounds of Silver Sounds DJ and enjoy a spectacular spread by Robert Ryan Catering, a proud supporter of the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation since its 2002 inception.

And don’t miss the highlight of the evening – the chance to win a weekend on Broadway.

The winner and a guest will walk out their front door and into a limousine that will whisk them away for a weekend in New York where they will experience the city in celebrity style! From an overnight stay in the city’s world-famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel to Sunday brunch at Central Park’s famed Tavern on the Green, this package is fit for a Broadway star.

In addition, the winner and a guest will have lunch at a Broadway restaurant, two primo matinee seats to a Broadway show of their choice, dinner for two atop Times Square and a visit to one of the city’s grandest museums before taking the limo home*.

Tickets are selling rapidly so don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! The cost of the raffle ticket is $100—while the package is valued at over $2,000! Only 400 will be sold. For information or to purchase tickets, contact Kenneth Krenicky at krenickyk@comcast.net. The winner will be drawn at the Gala. You do not need to be present to win. Proceeds from the raffle benefit the PCEF Endowment Fund.

Local Business Spotlight: Manor of Hope

Manor of Hope is a long term residential addiction rehab support program for young men. Located in a beautifully renovated farmhouse on Egypt Road in Phoenixville, Manor of Hope is a state of the art drug and alcohol recovery community that offers long term treatment and continuing care for young men with substance abuse issues.

The owner/mastermind of the Manor of Hope, Steve Killelea, dealt with his own son's addiction problem for over 10 years. Steve tried to help his son and sent him to many places, only to have him relapse - until he decided to look outside the US and in Canada found a "therapeutic community" where his son John found sobriety. Their program model inspired both Steve and John to create their own version right here in Phoenixville.

They also have created the "Building Futures" program which partners with small local businesses to help mentor and teach the young men vocational skills. One of the current residents named Steve has been working …
