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.

For tickets to the PCEF Gala, please contact Nan Odenthal, PCEF CEO, at 610.739.1599 or email buffy@appliedvideo.com. Gala tickets are $100; this event is garden party attire.

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages.
