For all of his success, Pat McAfee continues to also give back to the places and people he holds closest to his heart.
The latest example of this is the Plum Borough, Pennsylvania native helping to deliver a fun day for kids now growing up in the same community he once called home during his formable years.
As learned by our Logan Carney while covering the Plum council meeting for another outlet Monday night, McAfee spent approximately $32,000 buying every kid 17-years-old and younger an “all ride” ticket at Plum’s annual SummerFest last month. This meant McAfee was responsible for each of those kids being able to enjoy every ride completely free.
“We are very grateful to Pat McAfee of The Pat McAfee Show. Saturday evening the The Pat McAfee Show bought all of the ride all day tickets for children 17 and under. There was about 1,600 children that got free ride all day tickets and Pat McAfee donated about $32,000 for them,” Borough Manager Micheal A. Thomas announced during the meeting.
“So we’re very proud to have him as one of our former residents and alum here at Plum High School, but we just want people to know that’s the kind of commitment Plum people have to our community,” Thomas added to express the benefit of having someone like McAfee still interested in supporting the area he grew up in.
Plum’s SummerFest event, which was previously called the borough’s Community Days until being rebranded in 2018, took place from June 22-24.
