Diggerland and local non-profit join forces to organize philanthropic event 

West Berlin, NJ — Diggerland USA has partnered with the SAMBULANCE Program, a 501 c(3) non-profit tasked with fostering special needs safety education. The entities will co-host Dig, Dine and Drive, an annual fun-filled evening set to take place on Friday, June 9th from 6:00 to 10:00 PM.

Spin Dizzy 001Tickets for the all-inclusive event, priced at $30 each and now available online, include: live entertainment, a BBQ buffet, auction, specialized stunt show, as well as access to all the park’s various attractions.

Proceeds will support the continued education and safety of special needs individuals through the non-profit, which offers free hands-on training to the special needs community. In 2016 alone, over 22,000 students across New Jersey and Pennsylvania were reached by the SAMBULANCE team.

“Being able to provide lifesaving presentations is so rewarding,” said Annie Peters, Executive Director of SAMBULANCE. “The special population we reach is particularly vulnerable in emergencies. Knowing that we are making a difference in helping them stay safe, makes this job really special. Emergencies are daunting experiences, so allowing exposure to emergency personnel, vehicles and situations is vital.”

SAMBULANCE also works with Diggerland to host park events catered to the special needs community. These events, along with Dig, Dine and Drive have been made possible through ongoing support from Nemours DuPont Pediatrics in Voorhees. A number of both local and national companies have donated over $5,000 in raffle items for the auction, including Virtua and TD Bank.
