MAYFAIR BUSINESS AND CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS HOST

FOURTH ANNUAL “MAY FAIR” AND THIRD ANNUAL MAYFAIR FALLEN HEROES RUN HONORING SGT. PATRICK MC DONALD

Festivities Kick-Off At 7:30AM at Ryan Ave. and Sackett St.

On Saturday May 14th, 2011

The Mayfair Business Association is excited to announce its Fourth Annual “May Fair” festival along Frankford Ave and its Third Annual “Mayfair Fallen Heroes Run”. Business Association President Mike “Scoats” Scotese, owner of the Grey Lodge, is excited to announce a new wrinkle to this year’s May Fair with the incorporation of a stage with live bands and awards to coincide with the 15th Police District’s Advisory Council’s (PDAC) Community Day at the triangle at Cottman and Frankford Aves. Scotese said, “I am proud that this event has continued to grow in size as well as grow in community involvement. Some highlights of these years’ events include at Tot-Lot at See-Saw Daycare, a Health Fair at Stan’s Health, an Art Fair at the Devon Theater, and giveaways along the Avenue. This ‘May Fair’ is the premier family fun day in Mayfair”

We will start the day with our Third Annual Fallen Heroes Run and Walk. All proceeds from this race will go to the Heroes Thrill Show and the Sgt. Patrick McDonald Scholarship Fund with residual to the rebuilding of the Mayfair Memorial Playground. This year’s honoree is Sgt. Patrick McDonald, a highway patrol motorcycle cop who was killed in the line of duty in 2008. Civic Association President Joe DeFelice stated, that his group chose McDonald because “he carried with him the strong neighborhood values that our own residents recognize from our community.” The race will kick-off at 8:30AM at Ryan and Sackett Sts where we will have a bagpiper and a vocalist before the many participants compete in our 5K run.

All Day there will be free parking along Frankford Avenue provided by the Philadelphia Parking Authority from 10AM to 4PM.

These events are helping highlight an exciting year for Mayfair and are just another reason that Mayfair is a great place to live, work and play.
