25) Celebrate 25 years of history and philanthropy in Chester County!


24) Mingle and network with friends of the Community Foundation.


23) Taste local Chester County white wines from Galer Estate and Winery. Have you been to their estate behind Longwood Gardens?


22) Try local rose and red wines from Patone Cellars, the most beautiful venue and tasting room in Landberg, PA.


21) Sample red and white wines from Stargazers Vineyard. The Vineyard is located near the “Stargazers Stone” which marks the location of the observatory Mason and Dixon used in surveying the border between Pennsylvania and Maryland. They were known as “the stargazers” because they used celestial navigation to correct their measurements over the ground.


20) Eat savory appetizers and delicious desserts from John Serock Catering, the winner of Popular Vote at this year’s Silver Sweet Charity.


19) Enjoy a charcuterie board. Did someone say fancy meat and cheese?


18) Marvel at a cupcake creation by Cheryl’s Sweet Delights, a participant at this year’s Silver Sweet Charity. Who doesn’t love dessert?


17) The reception will highlight the Community Foundation’s history by recognizing its Founders, Jordan Award Honorees, Door Opener Honorees, and the 400+ family and nonprofit legacy funds entrusted to its stewardship. So cool!


16) Jam out to live music by New Street Heat Jazz Trio.


15) Explore the rustic and historically accurate Abbott Party Barn.


14)  To put it simply, it will be FUN!


13) The celebration will feature beer tastings offered by East Branch Brewing, who crafts beer in the heart of Downingtown ten barrels at a time.


12) Learn more about how CCCF enables individuals and families to support charitable causes now and forever.


11) You can also learn about how for our 25th anniversary, we:

  • Welcomed 25 new funds

  • Increased contributions to existing funds in increments of $25k

6) Party like its 1994!


5) Learn about some of the funds we hold. Ever growing, the Community Foundation has 400+ family and nonprofit legacy funds entrusted to its stewardship.


4) The event is taking place at the Franny and Franny Abbott family barn. Franny Abbot’s mother, Elizabeth Ranney Moran, was a founding member of the Chester County Community Foundation so we think that family legacy philanthropy tradition is pretty cool!
