“In these times of uncertainty, when we are beset by an epidemic of gun violence, the continuing threat of COVID-19, and the fraying of our very social fabric, an event like this – where we can all come together and enjoy being around each other, helping each other, connecting with each other again – it is a necessary part of regaining and strengthening our people, our community and our city. I thank all of those who have stepped up and stepped forward to help us make this the first of many such events, and I welcome Philadelphians from across the city to join us on Saturday to experience just what makes this the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.” – Sheriff Rochelle Bilal.
