On Thursday, December 6th, come out to Spring Hollow Golf Club in support of a great cause. Louie's Foundation, whose goal it is to help critically ill children and their families by providing funding and advocacy to improve their quality of life while at home or in the hospital, is hosting a beef and beer from 6-10pm. In addition, there will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and live music. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at http://www.eventbee.com/event?eid=995958305 or by stopping into the proshop at Spring Hollow. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit chronically ill children in our community and their families and Child Life Programs at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors. On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow. --- Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up. "The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything." Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store. --- Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914.
