On November 8th, The Philadelphia Chapter of The Links, Incorporated hosted a swinging Jazz luncheon event at the Hyatt at Penn’s Landing Hotel. More than 400 attendees enjoyed a lunch while celebrating the achievements of three honorees for outstanding community service:

Dr. English Willis, Ms. Brianna Baxter, and Mrs. Dorothy Sumners Rush (a Philadelphia Link chapter member).

The Philadelphia Links also showed a video presentation that highlighted their work with ‘The Big Read’ literacy project and; their sponsorship of ten Haitian businesswomen to undergo financial literacy training in partnership with Fonkoze.

Congratulations to Deidre Patterson (the event’s chair) and all of the members of the Philadelphia Chapter’s Fundraising Committee for a job well done!

The event is also covered in The Philadelphia Tribune online.

Have a great weekend everyone!
