Community Backstop is focused on meeting the needs and improving lifestyles for those who have found themselves in overwhelming situations. You can be involved in helping an individual or family in their time of need; someone who lives right in your community.
Thanks to both our long time and new supporters for helping us reach our 11 year milestone last year. We had another wildly successful Texas Hold 'em event this past April, refilling our coffers so that we, in turn, can help those in need. Now that we're in our second decade, there's no reason to slow down! Next year's event will be on Thursday, April 19, 2018 back at Aronimink Golf Club. To get a feel for our event, click on the link below for an NBC news interview with one of our founders and a family who we were able to help:
Rather than waiting until next April to rally around Community Backstop, we're excited to announce a new event that is sure to be a blast. On Saturday, September 16, 2017, CB will be hosting Beatlemania Now in the Aronimink ballroom. This is the preeminent Beatles tribute band and has performed to rave reviews worldwide. A few of us on the CB board have had the pleasure of seeing them perform, and we were blown away by their musical skills and showmanship. You'd swear you were seeing John, Paul, George and Ringo roll through all their biggest hits! The show is broken down into three sections: the early "moptop" days, the Sgt. Pepper era, and finally the long hair Let It Be chapter. Truly amazing. Head over the the "upcoming Events" tab to register for this fun night which will help support all the good work being done at Community Backstop.
