Thank You For Supporting STEM Programs In Philadelphia Schools!
The Burns Group is pleased to announce our efforts in fundraising to support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs at Philadelphia High Schools has raised $18,605.61 to date. The goal of the campaign is to encourage students to pursue careers within the engineering and construction industry through a variety of activities, and to buy much needed supplies for the classrooms of Overbrook and Swenson High Schools.
Throughout the year, the Burns’ Philanthropy Committee runs several events, including a “Death by Chocolate” bake-off, a chili cook-off numerous 50/50 raffles, and our Annual Monte Carlo Night to benefit Burns’ 2015 “Engineering a Bright Tomorrow” campaign.
The Burns’ 4th Annual Monte Carlo night, which is the premier event of the Burns Philanthropy Committee’s annual fundraising campaign, was held on Thursday, October 8th. We are immensely appreciative to all who donated and came out to help us support this wonderful cause. This fun and festive evening was attended by Burns’ employees, clients, peers, friends, and supporters of the Philadelphia School District, and significantly enhanced our fundraising goal. We are so grateful to Burns’ Philanthropy Committee for all the planning and hard work that went into making this a very successful fundraising event. A special thank you goes out to all of our sponsors of the 2015 Monte Carlo Night whose generosity is sincerely appreciated.

We will continue raising money for Overbrook and Swenson High Schools and can’t wait to get more involved with each school!
We look forward to seeing you again next year!
