Beds, Costumes, and Racing: Here’s the Scoop on the 5th Annual Phoenixville Bed Races
Before you set your drink down on a coaster at a Phoenixville business, take a moment to scan the QR code and learn about its importance. The coasters are to promote this year’s 5th annual Phoenixville Bed Races. If you’re not familiar with the bed races, it’s an event focused on raising awareness for people experiencing homelessness in the Phoenixville area.
The proceeds of the event are tied to 2 Phoenixville organizations that provide shelter for the homeless—Ann’s Heart and Good Samaritan Services. It’s a fun race where people build, decorate, and race beds down Second Avenue next to Reeves Park.
