The Emerging Philanthropist Program (EPP) will be hosting the 3rd Annual Harrisburg Hoopla on Saturday, June 1 2019. Through an adult track and field day style competition, our goal is to raise unrestricted funds for local nonprofit organizations and unite our community in support.
Harrisburg Hoopla is a fundraising event where teams compete in 10-12 field day style activities. Each team competes for a local nonprofit organization of their choice in hopes to win a portion of event proceeds for that nonprofit.
Note: Teams are not responsible for doing individual fundraising for this event.
