The World's Largest Resource for the Cart, Kiosk, and Temporary Retail Industry
by Press Release

The team at MarketPlace Philadelphia Management pulled their weight, and more, at the third annual Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House (PRMH) Plane Pull event.

Held on Atlantic Aviation’s tarmac at Philadelphia International Airport, the Plane Pull is designed as a tug of war competition between teams to see who can pull a plane over the designated distance in the shortest amount of time, all while raising funds and awareness for PRMH. The MarketPlace Philadelphia team placed first in the fundraising competition and raised more than $7,250.

MarketPlace Philadelphia Management is the management entity for the food and retail program throughout Philadelphia International Airport. The award-winning team is responsible for more than 160 in-line stores, restaurants and services, plus 30 specialty retail units.

“There were plenty of winners, but none bigger than the area families supported by the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House,” said Clarence LeJeune, president of MarketPlace Philadelphia Management. “We are proud to be able to share in the success of the annual Plane Pull event.”

The PRMH provides a home away from home for families of critically ill children receiving treatment at local hospitals. The group operates two houses in Philadelphia, at Chestnut Street and Erie Street, serving a total of 63 families daily. Founded in 1974 as the very first Ronald McDonald House in the world, PRMH is the model for nearly 300 houses throughout the world.
