More than 1,000 people crossed the wooden floors of Sunnybrook Ballroom over three hours last night (Oct. 13, 2008) to enjoy edibles and beverages served by 25 vendors during the 4th annual food festival fund-raiser of the Pottstown Area Police Athletic League (PAL).
Sunnybrook’s spacious size allowed PAL to more than double the number of restaurants and others that served its patrons last year. Much of the food festival’s $50 ticket price benefits PAL programs, including the development of football, soccer and baseball fields in Upper Pottsgrove (PA) Township.
Volunteers at historic Sunnybrook, on Sunnybrook Road at East High Street in Sanatoga, estimated the crowd size. They also said they had heard many compliments during the evening about the quality and quantity of food.
