I am looking for 25 brothers that would be willing to take 25 at-risk young males to the 76'ers game from your community.I will provide the tickets, but the young men must be in middle school or high school and they cannot be related to you.The purpose of this is to step outside of our circle and invest in the young men in our community that are on the wrong path.The catch is you must continue to mentor them beyond the game. I would never ask someone to do something that I'm not willing to do, so I am going to select a kid as well. We have to start from somewhere. The game is Wednesday and it's on a first come basis.Men our young brothers need us.Each man must select one kid.

East Passyunk: South Philly Bikes Keeps Things Moving

As the owner, repairman, mechanic and salesman of South Philly Bikes, located at the corner of 13th and Mifflin streets, Oettinger is proud of his store and shares the same feelings about the building’s history, which dates back to 1925.

    East Passyunk: South Philly Bikes Keeps Things Moving
    At first glance, South Philly Bikes may seem like just a typical bike shop. But to Dan Oettinger (pictured above, left), owner for the past three years, his shop is much more.
