Philadelphia — Frankford Candy, LLC raised more than $30,000 for The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia at its second annual “Sweets for Smiles” family bowling fundraiser, the company reports.
“At Frankford Candy, it is our mission to bring sweetness to so many lives,” CEO Stuart Selarnick says. “We are honored that we can share some of that joy with The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia right here in our backyard.”
More than 100 people attended the public event, doubling the company's 2012 donation, Frankford claims.
The Children’s Hospital Director of Event Fundraising and Community Partnerships adds: “We are greatly appreciative of Frankford Candy’s generosity and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia would not be the place it is today without the help of our community partners. Frankford Candy’s donation is going to make a real difference to the patients and families we serve.”
