About the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association Events Committee

The East Passyunk Civic Association Events Committee meets monthly to plan and implement entertaining and fundraising events within the East Passyunk Crossing neighborhood. Our events are a great way to meet neighbors, make new friends, raise awareness, and continue to foster a greater sense of community. We host multiple events throughout the year, including the Italian Red Gravy Cook-off, Summer Socials, EPX Bowling Night, Online Auction, and more!

 

Getting Involved

Come out to our monthly committee meeting! Our meetings are held one weeknight a month at 7:30pm at the East Passyunk Community Center (1025 Mifflin St, Philadelphia, PA 19148).

If you’d like to get involved with planning EPX events and executing fundraising efforts, please contact Events Chair, Lisa Aiello.
