Sharing the Harvest: Together We Can Make it Happen
Still playing catch up with my entries. I bring you an interesting good will event held 2 months back, the same night I attended the National Jewish American Museum, otherwise I would have stopped by this worthy cause:
Sharing the Harvest: Together We Can Make it Happen, a benefit celebrating
the 140th anniversary of The Episcopal Community Services was held on
Saturday, November 13 from 6:00-8:30 PM at the Pyramid Club.
Guests enjoyed an elegant reception, live music and an exclusive live auction.
The event raised over $50,000 for ECS. Darrell and Julia DeMoss (Haverford), The Rev. John Midwood(Executive Director, Philadelphia), Norman and Kathy McClave (Bryn Mawr)

Episcopal Community Services empowers vulnerable individuals and families
by providing high-quality social and educational programs that affirm
human dignity and promote social justice. Founded in 1870, today ECS is a
multi-service agency touching the lives of more than 2,000 people each
year through eight programs in four sites. Eighty-three cents of every
dollar spent goes directly to programs for people in need. The funds
raised from the celebration will go directly to support ECS’ services and
programs.Cliff and Barbara Kozemchak (Gwynedd), Gordon and Janice
Keen (Bryn Mawr) – event Co-Chairs
