Neighbors and friends gathered at St. Monica’s Lanes on Friday, June 12th to kick off EPX Civic’s bowling night fundraiser, featuring unlimited bowling, air hockey, and plenty of food and beer to incite competitive spirits and a night of fun.
The night served as the first of the upcoming summer socials, which work to bring EPX neighbors together to enjoy the neighborhood and to raise money for community outreach, charitable giving, and neighborhood beautification efforts.
Check out what attendees had to say about why they decided to come out and what they love about EPX—and be sure to attend our next summer social.
“There’s a lot of pizza shops!” – Matthew D.
(Special thanks to local shops Birra, Francoluigi’s, City Pizza, NY Italian Style Bakery, and Triangle Tavern for their catering!)
“I’m from South Philly but for the last five years I’ve been living in the East Passyunk neighborhood. I came out tonight because I’m very happy to have such an active and vibrant neighbor association. It’s great being around people who enjoy being where they live.” – Christopher Santenello [SP]
“I just joined the Beautification Subcommittee and it’s great. What I love about my neighborhood is the food places—especially Francoluigi’s—and the neighbors.” – Hannah Chatterjee
“Tonight, I hope a lot of people show up and have a good time. I kind of hope I win something on the raffle. We have a couple of meet-and-greets coming up but summer is typically a time for relaxing so that’s why our summer socials are purely about fun.” – Lee Tharps (right)
“I’ve lived in the neighborhood for forty years. I was one of the cofounders of EPX when we started about eight or nine years ago. I love the changes that are occurring—the young coming in and the old staying… it’s a great mix.” – Millie Ruffino
“My husband is the Chair of the Beautification Committee so I am here to support him and the civic association. What I love the most about living here is the awesome community.” – Whitney Simone (far right)
“What I like about this neighborhood is Southwark School. It’s very convenient and everything’s right here.” – Trish Downey
Ultimately, EPX is more than just boundaries in South Philly—it’s a community filled with dedicated members (and pizza lovers!). Come out and support the next event and interact on a more meaningful level with your neighborhood.
