Blooming Bash 2015 Acknowledgments

BB2015-square-forweb Thank you to everyone who made the 2015 Blooming Bash a success! Please see our list of volunteers and businesses below that contributed to the event.

We are also extremely grateful for the support ECS gave to our committee. It means a great deal to know we are all working together as a community.

The Blooming Bash was made extra fun this year with the help of Mr. R., Phil Hilf, City of Play and games provided by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership. Thank you!

Support the Playground
We are still hoping to raise more money to get started on the Lower School Playground project and will continue to accept donations on the website or by check (to ECS PCO).
