Athletic and Sporting Events
Emily’s Entourage participates as a charity partner in major athletic events, including the Philadelphia Gore-Tex Marathon and Penn Medicine Million Dollar Bike Ride, as well as various community fitness and wellness sessions. 

Parlor Meetings
Various members of the Entourage have graciously hosted parlor meetings to introduce Emily and Emily’s Entourage to their friends and social circles. These intimate events feature mingling, hors d’oeuvres and beverages, short, inspiring remarks, including a Q&A session, by Emily and her physician. The goal is to expand the Entourage by bringing these new members on board. We’re always looking for new hosts! 

College Fundraisers
From hosting an annual fundraising benefit concert to making Emily’s Entourage an official student organization and donating proceeds from Greek Week philanthropy events, college students have amazed us with their ability to find new, creative ways to spread the word and raise funds—and have a blast while doing it! Emily’s Entourage has had a presence on campuses across the country, including Tulane University, University of Arizona, New York University, University of Michigan, University of Delaware, University of Louisville, and Saint Joseph’s University.
