Celebrating 20 Years in Business

E.L.F Entertainment, Inc. is a local western Pennsylvania family business founded June of 1999.

E.L.F was founded with the need to provide safe and active fun to elementary and middle schools in the tri-state area.  The first purchase of equipment was a moon bounce, obstacle course, and bungee run. With little advertising and the referral of customers who were pleased with our services, we have grown to be the region’s event entertainment leader.

Erin - Erin M. Frankel was hired at E.L.F in 2007 as a part-time employee. Erin was promoted to event manager in 2008. She managed our most important contracts and clients. After graduating college she worked various positons outside the company. Erin returned to E.L.F. to fill the role of Office Manager in 2014.

Entertainment, Inc.  Beth founded the business with her late husband, Maury Frankel, in their own home and garage. They developed the business and eventually built a 14,000 square foot location in Gibsonia. By working events and developing the business' structure, she laid the ground work for where the company is headed today. Beth oversees day-to-day operation of the business. She inspects our events as a licensesd PA amusement safety inspector. You will see her at many of our Pittsburgh-area events.

With the mentoring of his father, Maury, he was able to establish his place as an event manager. Daniel was first certified as a licensed PA amusement safety inspector in 2003. In high school and college, he helped manage the contracts of some of the region's largest brands as well as dozens of communites and schools. Daniel spent some time away from the company pursuing other oppurtunites between 2011 and 2014. When he returned as general manager, Daniel helped to restructure the business model under which E.L.F. operated.
