Pre-Turkey Burn for T&E Care with Mojo Fitness
Get ready for the 8th annual Mojo Turkey Burn, scheduled to be held on November 21, 2020. This is a popular event bringing together lots of folks with good exercise, and all proceeds go to T&E Care. The event runs $10/person. But like everything else these days – some changes will occur due to Covid. The event will not take place the weekend after Thanksgiving to burn off the calories from the pies. Instead this year it will be a pre-turkey burn on THE SATURDAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING so you can prepare to eat those calories!! (Don’t tell Cindy we are giving you permission to eat that pie!) If the weather cooperates the event will take place at 10:00 at the Wilson Farm Park amphitheater. There is plenty of room outside for social distancing. If it’s too cold it may be taken indoors to Main Line Sports Center (1340 Swedesford Road, Berwyn). It’s a HUGE facility with ample room for social distancing (15 feet or more). Check out Mojo Fitness to confirm location prior to the event. You can also sign up for online classes on the website as well! Thanks as always to Cindy Brauer for holding this event for T&E Care!!!
Nothing Bundt Cake yummy event
Thanks again to Erin and Mike Shine, the owners of Nothing Bundt Cakes in the Gateway Shopping Center, for partnering with T&E Care as they celebrated their 2nd anniversary of the store. When they opened the store in 2018 they hosted a “give back” day for T&E Care – which was such fun for us! They did this again on Friday, October 16, 2020, where 10% of any purchases went to T&E Care! We thank all those who indulged in the yummy cakes to support this special event. And thanks to the Shines for their continued generosity to this community!

Once again many many folks experienced the magic of a German Christmas market (“Weihnachtsmarkt”) here on the Main Line! The beautifully decorated Barn at Willowbrook Farm served as the romantic backdrop to this German Christmas tradition.

We thank the organizers of Weihnachtsmarkt for donating all proceeds to T&E Care. Over $1000 was raised at this special event – with a match from SAP as well. THANKS to all!
