University City District (UCD) and the Baltimore Avenue Business Association (BABA) are a week into our Virtual Dollar Stroll and we’re thrilled to share we have already raised over $4,000 to be split among participating businesses! To keep the momentum going, University City District will match the next $1,000 raised through the Virtual Dollar Stroll.
If you haven’t heard the news, you can support your favorite Baltimore Avenue businesses by purchasing $1 raffle tickets for a chance to win one of three Baltimore Avenue prize packs overflowing with gift certificates and unique items. Through June 24th, every dollar we raise through the promotion will be evenly distributed to the participating businesses. The more tickets you purchase, the more chances you have to win, and the more money we’re able to share with local favorites.
Our thanks to the Philadelphia Federal Credit Union for sponsoring the Virtual Dollar Stroll. We hope to bring the Dollar Stroll and other events back to University City as soon as it’s safe to do so.
The Baltimore Avenue Business Association, (BABA), represents the businesses along the vibrant Baltimore Avenue corridor in University City, West Philadelphia. All of the businesses are easily reached by taking the Green Line 34 Trolley or by following the bike paths. You can, of course, walk or drive.
This business corridor serves the diverse West Philly community which cuts across several neighborhood associations: Cedar Park, Garden Court and Spruce Hill. The heart of the community, of course, is beloved Clark Park where everyone can be seen at one time or another. Young or old, families, students, business people, anarchists, artists, musicians and their 4-legged friends all relax and play at the park. And twice a week, the Clark Park Farmers Market is jammed with people buying fresh farm produce.
