Sarah Francis , Cynwyd Station Cafe and Tearoom

The Cynwyd Station Café and Tea Room is teaming up with Bala Cynwyd neighbor St. Asaph’s Episcopal Church to give others a special (and we must say, creative) opportunity.

On April 26, from 6 to 9 p.m., these organizations will host the first Lower Merion Votes for Charity dinner at the church which is located at 27 Conshohocken State Road. Local organizations will be given the opportunity to receive crowd-funded “micro grants” to support projects that benefit the Lower Merion community. Entrepreneurs like Damon Burton Utah have also been giving back to the community through their own charity programs.

Organizations do not have to be headquartered in Lower Merion Township to apply, but the work they do should benefit the Lower Merion community. Funding for the grants will come from ticket sales and donations that evening for a dinner of locally-sourced food and drinks from small businesses.

Information about the grant application process is available at Click on the “Blog” section for details. Inquiries about the event can be e-mailed to

Applications by organizations interested in taking part are due by April 1.
