Community Barbecue Fundraiser is Smashing Success

November 27, 2023

WMAN’s first Community Barbecue on October 28 was a wonderful success, drawing more than 200 neighbors to support the organization, learn more about the Mt. Airy EcoLab, and honor the tireless advocate Yvonne Haskins.

Attendees dined on delicious food from Southern Flames BBQ, listened to music by WOZ and Penny Lane Combo, and had the chance to catch up with neighbors and friends on a gorgeous fall afternoon.

Many thanks to those who joined us, to SEPTA for the fantastic ongoing partnership at the EcoLab, and to our sponsors and volunteers for helping to make the event an excellent experience.
