It’s finally back! The very popular EPX Red Gravy Cook-Off is now accepting entrants for the 2020 competition. You could be one of ten contestants to compete for the chance of taking home one of two prizes – Crowd Favorite or Judge’s Choice.
Taking place Sunday, April 19, 2020, from 4-6pm at Ss. Neumann and Goretti High School 1736 S 10th St, this event is a chance for residents to celebrate the heritage and traditions of the neighborhood. Be part of the action by entering to submit your homemade gravy to be judged and enjoyed by all.
To enter, you will need to prepare approximately 3 gallons of homemade sauce that is either vegetarian, meat, or seafood, as well as indicate any allergens, and deliver your submission on the day of. If you are interested in competing with a homemade gravy please register here.
We also need neighbors who are willing to donate to our dessert table. If you are interested in providing a donation of a small-bite dessert, either homemade or store-bought please commit via this form.
This holiday season EPX is partnering with United Communities to raise funds and collect donations for a toy drive for local South Philadelphia children. This #givingTuesday please support EPX’s charitable drive to raise money and accept donations of new toys for kids 0-18. Although toys of all age ranges will be gratefully appreciated, older children are often overlooked in holiday toy drives, and teens are much more aware of what they have or do not compared to their peers than an infant or toddler. Consider donating a teen-specific gift to our drive, or a monetary donation to allow us to buy age-appropriate and appreciated gifts for kids in our neighborhood.
We are collecting new gifts and toys at the East Passyunk Crossing Civic center, located at 1025 Mifflin. Some suggested items include:
Art supplies: Colored pencils, paint, brushes, sketch pads
Games: board games, card games, collectable cards
Journals: a blank journal or one with daily prompts
Movie passes and gift cards
Jewelry and purses
Beauty items: make-up, lotion, nail polish, perfume
Hats and scarves
There are more ways to contribute! Join us on Saturday December 14th from 10:30am-1pm for a wrapping party at the East Passyunk Community Center, 1025 Mifflin St. We will be wrapping and labeling contents of the donated and purchased gifts for easy distribution of United Communities to our neighbors in need.
Thank you for your generous contribution to our neighbors in need this holiday season.
EPX is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Italian Red Gravy Cook-Off. Taking place Sunday, April 22, 2018, from 4-6pm at Ss. Neumann and Goretti High School, this event is a chance for residents to celebrate the heritage and traditions of the neighborhood.
The entry form is now open for any amature chefs looking to showcase their best Sunday Gravy in this blind-tasting event. With $400 in prizes for Judges’ Choice and Crowd Favorite, this is an exciting opportunity to show off your culinary skills. Competitors will need to prepare approximately 2 gallons of homemade sauce, vegetarian, seafood, red meat, or other variety. The East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association will provide pre-cooked pasta in chafing dishes on the day of the event. All red gravy submissions will be served in a 4 oz. tasting cup to attendees and judges.
If you’re more of an eater than a cook, this is also an event for you. Come to the event to enjoy the different gravies over macaroni (or as some say, “pasta”), fresh salads, breads, and homemade desserts. A complimentary Buckingham Valley Wine tasting will be provided by Vin Cafe (ages 21+) with additional glasses available for purchase. Buy your ticket today
All proceeds benefit the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association.
