WHEREAS it is the intention of the Mayor and Council of Cherry Hill Township to focus attention on noteworthy occasions and events; and
WHEREAS today, the community has come together to celebrate the Grand Opening of The Big Event, a new entertainment experience at the former Playdrome, the home of family-friendly fun in Cherry Hill for more than 50 years; and
WHEREAS the opening of the Big Event is the culmination of two years of vision and renovation by owner Jon Perper, who has taken the bowling alley his father founded in the late 1950s and transformed it into a place where families and friends of all ages and interests can enjoy a variety of experiences under one roof; and
WHEREAS designed with both a “retro” feel and modern comfort in mind, The Big Event goes beyond the traditional bowling alley, to include billiards, arcade games, a new café, and private rental capabilities, with new additions planned for 2016; and
WHEREAS a hallmark of a successful business is its ability to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of the community it serves, and we wish to commend Mr. Perper and his team for their work to move this entertainment landmark forward – and to celebrate the start of an exciting new chapter for family-friendly fun in Cherry Hill.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, CHUCK CAHN, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the Township of Cherry Hill, County of Camden, State of New Jersey, do hereby celebrate the Grand Opening of
The Big Event
in Cherry Hill, and ask all citizens to join with me and the members of Township Council in wishing owner Jon Perper great success as he looks to continue and build upon our community’s long-standing legacy of family fun and entertainment for many years to come.
