PERC’s History Mystery Tour

Summer just wouldn’t be summer without a Scooby-Doo-Fantastic-PERC History Mystery Tour. Pittsburghers were happily fleeced when bought tickets to help fund PERC’s community service projects. We rented a big yellow school bus as our Mystery Machine and toured some of the East End’s finest breweries and restaurants. All the while, teams of contestants answered Pittsburgh History trivia questions put to them by our own Professor Buzzkill. It was a Scooby-Dooby-Blast!

5K Race to Outrun Polio!

All sorts of dedicated and nutty Pittsburghers turned out for our October 2017 5K Race to Outrun Polio, held at Homestead’s popular Waterfront. Runners were encouraged to race in costume, and many did so. Others, such as PERC’s own Liz Kennon, dressed in running clothes, took the event way too seriously, and even recorded their race times. In this photo, race-master and time-keeper Tom Fallon starts the runners going. This is one our most successful annual events and raises a large percentage of PERC’s contribution to Rotary International’s efforts to End Polio Now!

PERC Fundraiser at Mad Mex!

In February 2018, we held a fundraiser at MadMex restaurant in Shadyside, to raise money for our community service projects in Pittsburgh and around the world. PERC members sold tickets to the event, and social and political leaders joined us to party like it’s 1999! These fundraisers are necessary to keep the PERC budget afloat and to keep us searching for new projects to support.

PERC Little Free Library Decoration!

On March 31, 2018, PERC members, friends, neighbors, and our children painted and decorated the Little Free Libraries we are building and placing in some of Pittsburgh’s East End neighborhoods. It was a combination of painting, pot-luck snacking and drinking, and putting PERC stickers inside the books that have been donated. Each aspect of the party was a huge success and we look forward to the Libraries being put up this spring and summer!
