Event Recap: 14th Annual Summer Picnic, Presented by Wawa & Health Partners Plans


More than 1,000 Bigs, Littles, families, and alumni joined us on Saturday, June 24th for our 14th Annual Summer Picnic presented by Wawa and Health Partners Plans at Franklin Square.

The picnic is our largest annual event, celebrating the impact of mentoring on transforming lives, families and communities.

Attendees enjoyed a fun-filled day of great food courtesy of Wawa, face painting, balloon art, carousel rides, arts and crafts, relay races, tug-of-war, games, Zumba (thanks to Health Partners Plans), and appearances by Star Wars characters and the Health Partners Plans mascot!

Huge thanks to our sponsors, our staff, and everyone who attended and made it a great event.
