Good Deed-Women Against Abuse
October 14th, 2009
On Saturday, October 3, the first Women’s Fall Festival was held at Jefferson Square Park and St. Peter’s School’s Ms. Alderfer took part. This event was organized by 5 local female entrepreneurs: Jess Cubicciotti, Kristen Klem, Kristen Leahey, Erin Fox, and Wendi Dorofee. The festival featured local female artists, DJs, and bands. Melissa Alderfer enjoyed volunteering for the day and highly recommends everyone attending next year. All proceeds were donated to Women Against Abuse, a comprehensive program which assists women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Last year, Women Against Abuse assisted over 10,000 individuals in Philadelphia.
It was a great time, for a great cause!
