We’ll keep updating this page and our social media accounts (so while you’re here, you might as well follow us on Instagram), but we can say for sure that there will be food, drinks, games and activities for all ages, raffles for prizes, and more!

Thank You To Our Sponsor!

Love Your Block® | Philadelphia Real Estate | Pigeon Logo

We are so excited to announce that we have an official sponsor for this event, local real estate company, Love Your Block! Love Your Block is a long-time friend of the tool library, and their generous donation will help make this one of the best events we’ve ever done. Bonus: they’re an LGBTQ+, women-owned business and lifetime members of WPTL! Here’s a little more about them, in their own words:

Learn More About Love Your Block

Love Your Block® is an LGBTQ+, women-owned real estate team started by real-life married couple, Laura and Tiffany–we like to joke that we’ve been putting the homo in “homeowner” since 2012. We believe that thorough information, thoughtful guidance, and strong cocktails are the recipe for a great transaction. And, we don’t hide our politics or beliefs up in the attic; we bring them right down to the living room and show them off, because that’s what Julia Sugarbaker would do. Consequently, if you don’t like cursing, terrible puns, or the “outrageous” notion that black and trans lives matter, we’re not the realtor for you. But if you want an unrivaled combination of education, experience and enthusiasm for the city of Philadelphia (warts and all), then yeah, we can ride together. In short, this is not your average real estate jawn. #gobirds
