Join us for our Annual Community Celebration on December 8th!

Join SAF Chairman, David Hawk, President and CEO of SAF, Laura Ducceschi, and our entire Board of Governors on December 8, 2015 from 5:00-7:30 at POSH at the Scranton Club for our Annual Community Celebration. Local attorneys, please join us at 4:00 for an ethics CLE presented by James Gillotti, Esq., CELA of Oliver Price & Rhodes entitled “Ethical Considerations in Estate Planning.”

The Annual Community Celebration is complimentary to donors and friends, but your support is greatly appreciated. This year, your gift to the Scranton Area Community Foundation will benefit countless women and children in our community by funding programs that target the root causes of poverty, inequality, and poor health. Most importantly, any donations received this year will be applied toward a fundraising goal, which will then allow SAF to receive an additional $150,000 in funding! Your support will help us to help women and children in our community to learn the skills and develop the tools they need to create a better life for themselves, their families, and our community.

In addition to highlighting all of the good work done in our community throughout 2015, this year’s celebration will pay special tribute to our Featured Community Partners: PNC Bank and Oliver Price & Rhodes. We will also introduce the members of our Professional Advisory Council and Women in Philanthropy. Special recognition will be given to Sister Ann Walsh, I.H.M. as the Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Award recipient and Tara Atkins, for receiving the Roseann Smith Alperin Award.
