A key component to BigBite events is the celebration of Philadelphia’s diversity. People from all cultures and economic backgrounds come together, with their differences, and their similarities, to share something they all love, GREAT FOOD!! That said, it only makes sense to have our events in spaces that have the right, welcoming, inspiring energy.
Fleisher Art Memorial, founded on the belief that all of us should have access to the arts, is just that! A Philadelphia staple for art instruction, Fleisher’s low cost art programs serve 17,000 students annually. Fleisher’s youth program, serving about 3,000 students a year was recipient of the 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award by Michelle Obama, the nation’s highest honor for out-of-school arts and humanities programs.
BigBite is honored to have the opportunity to use a portion of the proceeds from this year’s Wing King 5 to create five scholarships for children in need of financial support for Fleisher’s Saturday Program for Children and Youth. When you come to Wing King this Saturday, inquire within and grab a brochure. Fleisher is a magical place whose value to our community only grows as funding for school art programs continue to get slashed in budget lines all over the city.
