The Lady Hoofers and Mascher Space Co-op participated in the Philly Stake micro-grant event at Christ Church Neighborhood House. We were honored that attendees voted to award us first place funding of $1000 to continue our residency program with Moffet Elementary School's 5th grade students. This is our third year offering free weekly tap classes and shoes to 75+ students in Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood.
Philly Stake is a recurring event celebrating locally sourced food and creative community projects; organized completely by volunteers. Stake dinners are seasonal meals sourced from local farms and purveyors. At each dinner, project proposals are presented to the diners. Community members pay a $20 donation for dinner and an opportunity to vote for the project they deem most worthy of funding. These projects aim to contribute to the vitality of Philadelphia in a multitude of innovative ways. Awardees will leave with the dinner proceeds and will present their project at the next meal.
