On Sunday, July 19th, I will be one of over 1,600 cyclists who will gear up to ride the 28th Annual Irish Pub Tour de Shore, a 65-mile charity bike ride. This ride from the Irish Pub at 20th & Walnut to the Irish Pub in Atlantic City is the flagship event of the Irish Pub Children’s Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to raising funds for Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey Region children’s charities.
Last year, they raised $700k in donations and were able to spread it out to 30 different charities, including:
• The Daniel Faulkner Educational Grant Fund
• FOP Survivor’s Fund
• Police Athletic League of Philadelphia

We are very proud to say that we have raised a total of $4.2 million (in the 27 previous years) and we net over 80% of all funds we raise- putting us in the top tier of all non-profit organizations in the country. You can read more about the trip and the charities here, http://irishpub.donordrive.com.
To help in my fundraising efforts for the ride, I will be doing an on location mini session on May 17th in Rittenhouse Square. Please see the flyers below for more details. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
I hope to see you there!
