We're gearing up for a fun-filled summer and what better way to start things off than with our annual Rally for Recreation?!?!
The fun begins Thursday, June 26th at the Rally for Recreation Kick-Off Party. The party starts at 6PM and includes an open bar (beer & wine), hors d'oeuvres, entertainment, a silent auction, and a few special guests. It's sure to be a night of fun and play in the name of parks and playgrounds!

The celebration continues into Friday, June 27th for the Rally for Recreation | International Golf Tournament at the Berkleigh Golf Club. You will enjoy lots of surprises on the course this year, including high-fives from several special guests and professional athletes as they make their way around the course. Then, On Saturday, June 28th, we're building a playground!
This year we were awarded a grant from KaBOOM! & DrPepper Snapple Group to help revitalize the 16th & Haak Playground. Currently, the only thing in the playground is a basketball court, some four square, a few benches, and a steel frame where a swing set once was. We visited several classrooms under the guise that we were doing research for Andy, the owner of General Recreation, A.K.A. the playground guy, and had the kids draw pictures of what their dream playground would look like. We took those drawings and created the design for the playground, which we'll all be building June 28th. On April 30th, we held an assembly at the school, which sits directly across the street from the playground, and announced to the kids that they are getting a brand new playground. We aren't sure who is more excited, us or them! For more information, or to donate to the project directly, please visit
We look forward to your support and celebrating, golfing, and sweating with you...all in the name of play for Berks County!
