Two weeks ago, Conshohocken AMBUCS’ yearly ASAP (AMBUCS Special Athletics Programs) banquet celebrated some 200 athletes affected by intellectual or physical challenges. Come May 19, several of those honorees will test their physical prowess, maybe even topple a personal best or two, during Montgomery County Special Olympics’ Invitational Track Meet at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School.
Participants in AMBUCS’ May 20 Restaurant Rally aren’t looking to do either. But as they nibble and sip their way through nearly two dozen Conshohocken eateries, they will be doing plenty to boost ASAP’s bottom line, writes M. English in the Ambler Gazette.
Tickets for this year’s Rally — set for noon to 4:30 p.m. — remain “one of the best bargains around” at $60 a head. The event is co-sponsored by Love Conshy, the chamber of commerce arm of the Greater Conshohocken Business and Development Corp., and all proceeds subsidize AMBUCS ASAP activities.
Restaurant Rally 2018 will begin with registration, a light brunch buffet and drinks at the Great American Pub at 123 Fayette St. Participants can then spend the afternoon sampling an eclectic international menu ranging from American to Italian, Mexican and Thai .
“We’ve been doing this since 2007, and people always rave about how good the food is … and what a good time they have,” Flocco says. “Some of these restaurants have been part of the Rally since the beginning, and they keep stepping up to help out. Mostly, we can count on everyone in town to step up every year unless they have staffing issues or previous [commitments] that make it impossible. But, let me tell you, we couldn’t do this without them. They know it’s for a good cause, and that certainly helps gets people involved.”
