Our 85th Anniversary Celebration last night was a tremendous success!
Not even the obstacles of Covid-19 could stop us from our long-anticipated gala! The event was a virtual triumph, with nearly 90 people in attendance. We reached our fund-raising goals and raised additional funds live during the event that will be used to help older youth with extra expenses as they transition to independence and families with technology needs during COVID-19.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us, including our event sponsor Lockton, its President Chris Keith, and all of our sponsors and donors. We are also extremely grateful to our staff, families, community partners, and supporters who helped make our celebration a huge success.
We are very appreciative of comedian TuRae Gordon for emceeing our event and youth band WanMor who gave a fantastic, soulful performance. A big congratulations to our staff award winners and NBC10 news anchor Vai Sikahema on receiving our Kids Champion Award.
Special thanks go to NBC10 Philadelphia for covering the event.
